    Yes agree and believe me, I have been to every aquarium store in Adelaide North, South, East and West and I live in Adelaide Hills. Watergardens Lonsdale sell cheapest plants 5 bunches for $20 where others only sell three for $20. Pets domain sell 10 neons for $10 and $1 for rosy barbs. Seaview Aquariums if your looking for cheap plastic ponds they are cheaper than Fish Haven. Darren at Elite Fish is great, I bought my turtle from him 6 years ago but they are about fish. He does like the the turtles and they did inherit Gary who in fact was a female Short neck but no longer with us. They dont raise turtles and get them from a breeder here in the hills.
     
    Kev your set up is the best but Vic is cheaper with a lot of things Adelaide small country town even stuff for sale on gumtree is cheaper over there.

    Hahahaha, honest mistake I know, but Kev isn't in Vic, and would be horrified for anyone to think he is. :)

    Yeah and I can't wait for Darren to finish the new display he is going to do. I know I'm addicted You would have spoke with either Amy or Darren's wife. Amy doesn’t know turtles. I actually told them about the info on AFT and my struggles to get river sand etc. They are a great family business all involved.
     
    Oops, sorry I assumed he was, sorry my mistake. For some reason I thought he lived near Amazing Amazon. My apologies.

    Setup is looking great so far. :) Went in today as Darren has found a supplier for calgrit as well. Much easier having somewhere in the hills to buy it than having to travel to Adelaide all the time and/or try to get it from interstate.
