    Hi and welcome. You must be so excited to finally be able to keep Ts legally and you've found the right place to get any questions answered. :)

    Metalman .. Maine is one of the worse state we have an unrestricted list of what we can have with out permits .. 10 pages of it is fish the other 7 pages are everything else .. you can get permits if your lucky for some species but the requirements make it not worth the doing ..

    Crazy8s inverts are selling 1.5inch G. Pulchra slings for $65. K8inverts.com.
    G. Pulchripes is a great choice. A beautiful gentle giant that, if female, can live for 20 years.
    Welcome to TF.

    Great! Excellent price. We will help where we can, but if your husbandry skills are half as good as your buying skills, you'll be giving us help.
