Used a plate and plastic bag to fill. Dustiest substrate ive dealt with to date!! Last night I couldnt see an inch into the tank. This morning I can see the filters, but not the airhoses connecting them. Hopefully tomorrow its a bit more clear!
Also, im no longer happy with my aquascape as both pieces of wood FLOATED on me!! They sunk instantly in the bath tub, but I guess the few days of sitting around let them really dry out. so they are currently floating at the top of the tank, which means i will have cloudy water again whenever I add the DW back into the mix. I tried to do a water change just to clear things up... but the water I sucked out was clear as well, I said whatever and dumped it back in.
It will take care of itself... Besides the wood, I wont be messing with it much the next few weeks!!
See the double head air pump? Its the cheap version. WHY IS IT SOOOO QUIET? Puts the one for double price to SHAME. it is pumping my 4 double sponge filters NO problem, VERY quiet. thats crazy to me. I thought I'd have to have that for 2, and have a completely different airport and split that one for the other 2. Very happy camper.
Neither of the woods are sinking, I glued 1 to a tile, and dont think im going to use the other. Might just grow fissidens on the one I glued. have the 2x2 xmas moss bush, and maybe fissidens on the rock?? Will add cholla wood for sure.
This came today
And lastly, this doesnt belong here but heres a picture of what will go in this tank.
A stubborn piece of wood I tell yai even added a tile and its floating. Guess ill wait a few days and see. Added fissidens. Where would you put this? I was thinking left side, peak facing towards front of tank, rotated towards the center of the tank. Make snse? Like flowing left to right
Remember... not planting yet. Plan to add cholla wood and even a cholla wood breeding tunnel. Also alder cones and such... I also added another 2x2 xmas moss square figured it grow twice as quick right lol
