^ You can take the bottom out and have it at the side. The problem with this is the weight issue, I don't know if it can hold a tank. Looks pretty sturdy, those legs got some meat on them.

Impressive set up all around. I especially like the earlier rolling mounds of HC.

Have you tried flooding your tank with co2 to eliminate the scuds?

how do you get rid of scuds?

I move the killi fish, the tank has 2 dwarf puffers now. I haven't seen any scuds since.

Not in the morning, not at night, not at water change, not ever.



Here a pic....

Sweet. Dwarf puffers are cool. Always wanted to get some of those. But you cant keep anything else with them right? They have to be alone? Got any pics of them?

I also wanted to say you keep a gorgeous tank my friend. I have a fluval edge as well. Was also my first tank. Now I've got four. Wife wants me to get it back to one. Lol.

Thanks!

I got 3 puffers but the smallest one was picking on the bigger one so I moved her to another tank. I kid you not, I keep her with baby shrimps, doesn't even pick on them. She only eats live brine shrimp.

Wow that is really cool. Will she eat scuds though? Or just live brine shrimp?

^ Afraid not, just brine shrimp. Add a dwarf puffer and your scuds will be gone, but it's a gamble.

Is your Edge still up and running, or did you tear it down entirely when you went to the 60P?

Hi Kman, thanks for the interest. I did tear it down completely, I swap out the Flourite Black for Aqua Soil. I kind of miss the Flourite Black's look in a Fluval Edge.

This is what it has now,

Cool! So, tore down, and built back up.

One of these days I'll have to play with a co2 setup...

Fluval Edge 6 gallon with HC Cuba carpet

If the tank is empty of shrimp you should so the DSM to speed up the carpet
My 6g edge took about a month to carpet with DSM > http://fishtankprojects.com/aquascap...tears-dsm.html
