Sounds like you'd have to be careful to not crack the glass. I've read threads where they crack the glass just cleaning the silly tank. I'd like to see the picture.
As it stands the tank is still dry. I'll be rinsing the Flourite today and maybe getting the tank set up with the driftwood.
Since the DW will still leach some I'll probably run a very small amount of purigen to help keep the water clear, but I think that will not allow my cycle to even begin. We'll see. What can I place loose purigen in so it doesn't get all over? Thanks.
