I'd be willing to go in on a group buy... But not until probably late May. I have a fish room to build again. >.<
We are just starting a move. 10 min drive from where we are now. Purchased, not rented, but with a caveat or two... Long story that I won't detail on a public site. It does mean that I will have a permanent fish room here soon... And that I will be broke for a bit. With the good comes the bad, right?
But once the room is done, I will be on the lookout for Lamprichthys again. I love those fish... And will finally be able to get some, raise them up and know they won't die in a move. I will be needing some buffer once I find them, so the timing is pretty good for me for a group purchase then.

Note that even at the high end of these ranges, the total of all major ions (excluding carbonate & bicarbonate) is only 160 mg/L. In terms of table salt equivalent, that's one teaspoon of NaCl salt per TEN gallons.
Not sure how this compares with other natural non-coastal hard-water systems, like Mex & Cent Amer lakes & rivers. Anybody seen analyses of these?
