Re: Substrate for use

Re: Substrate for use

Re: Paracord???

Haven't gotten responses from everybody yet but one survivalist who writes articles on paracord has told me he's never seen any of his paracord leach dye or fade color. To his knowledge paracord is never treated with anything as well. I'll keep digging.

When I started all the shells were in one place on the ground then I added more shells for variety. the extra sh...

Re: Trouble changing shells help!! Stuck?

I know nothing first off. But if you saw it shaking in the pet store and it's still doing that it may be behavior due to other circumstances other than shell change???

Paracord???

So i want netting. Lots of people use jute. Its tough to find jute we "trust". How bout paracord? There are different types made different ways from different countries. But the way i see it paracord should be 100% nylon. Addatives are unnecessary and may even weaken the chord. If you buy american m...
