These are the sites I use and where I order supplies from, just click on the site name. If you come across a really good site that is pond related let me know and I'll consider it for a link on this page. If you're building a website and online business be sure to go to the last part of this page for some great business links, I use all that are listed and find them priceless for every day business.
Lots of great information here. Also some unique and hard to find fancy goldfish. Even with the trip from Hawaii and taking 2 days, the fish are in great shape. As low as $15 shipping. Lots to look at. Steve Hopkins has more first hand experance with goldfish than anyone else I have come across and he has no problem sharing his knowledge with others. Lots to learn at this site.
Kokos Goldfish www.kokosgoldfish.com/index.html
Another good site for the goldie keepers. Lots of easy to understand information, pictures and health care. I go here a lot just to look around. Doesn't look to be updated often, but good information is timeless. If you sign in here, try to give tadege.com a plug on their local supply page.
Fish Diseases and Cures
This is a very usefull site if your fish are having problems. Very indepth and you can contact them for problem solving. Be forwarned, this site is huge and you can spend a large amount of time reading about almost anything related to fish, both salt water and fresh.
I get a lot of questions about water quality. This links is a good starting place to understanding the conditions you need to meet to have quality water and keep your fish pond healthy.. uml
Snails And Care
The very best site on snails and care. Easy to understand with lots of pictures. You will find your answers here. Also a lot of good links.
Super Shrimp Page
If you are really into shrimp take a look at this site. The most information I have found at anyone place. They also have a lot of differant shrimp for sale, some I have seen offered no where else, although a little pricey for me. If you are new to shrimp don't let this site freak you out, when I got my first 6 red cherry shrimp I knew nothing and just let them go in a lily pond and they thrived, there are now thousands. Hey, I would be interested in trading a few red cherries with you to add diversity to the genetic if you would, just bring some with you when you visit Tadege land.
A well know hobby auction site. Most things are offered with the hobby person in mind, a pleasant brake from that mad house Ebay. Usually paypal, but all auctions are kind of on their own. Free to sell. I sell there as pickup only, user name tadege.
Waer Garden International
If you are past the stage of just picking up a couple water plants for your water garden and are getting serious, this site is for you. Information from world class water gardners, gathered from all parts of the world is posted here. It's free to join the WGI. Even without signing up there is some really indepth information posted, I spend hours reading about propagation and growth of water plants here. Don't be put off about signing up, this is a pro site and you will not be blasted with emails or spam. They have nothing to sell and are just sharing information between the top growers in the field of water gardens, a surprising number of them in Florida so it's a double win for us. Actually as a member there are sometimes plants and seeds offered just for the postage. Remember this link even if you are not interested at this time, when the serious bug bites you'll want to visit this often. A+
I am pretty much fed up with craigs list, what was at one time a great place to post ads has become almost unusable. I now spend most of my advertising time at "Backpage". Easier and faster to post at and you can run the same ad in as many locations as you want, options to auto renew and a lot more benefits and like craigs it's FREE. Check it out below and while you're there post a free ad.
Here is a program that I consider a must have. If you’re in business just link your funding sources, like PayPal or credit/debit cards and your book keeping is automatic, all expenses and credits are transferred to the account, very user friendly and easy. Makes tax time a snap and you’ll miss no deductions. I’ve used “Outright” for a number of years and swear by it. I started with paper ledgers and balance sheets, they are a nightmare. Even if you’re not ready to file taxes on your business you’ll want to keep very good records of your out going cost for later use, no more lost receipts. Click the link below and give it a try for free. By the way, it’s very inexpensive when you decide to go full time with it.
It’s always good to have a backup plan. I use BellSouth for my main connection but with storms and other problems it’s not 100% reliable so I also have a back up ISP and it’s free. Even if you never use it you’ll always know you have a backup for emergencies. Click the link below, it's free, do it now, don't wait till it's to late.
Paypal for business is a must have, like it or not it's here to stay. I personally have never had a problem with it. Send invoices, take payments, transfer or credit cards, even print and pay for shipping postage at one stop. Great records for online sales for tax time, monthly statements and much more. I don't think you have a choice, if you have an online business, it's a must have. Free to sign up.
