    In my never-ending biocube battle, I've decided to pick up a CPR Aquafuge2 on here. I just wanted to ask for recommendations on stocking of it. I don't mind adding different things here and there, but is the safest bet to just go with chaeto for now? Very curious on this one, please let me...

    Howdy. Just got back from Panama...didn't end up being the greatest trip in the world, but at least I got to use my underwater camera. I purchased a full underwater housing for my Canon A95 (5MP) a bunch of years back and haven't gotten to use it much...luckily I got to use it before I got...
