Hey guys! I have three fish that need new homes! Anyone interested? I have 1 adult marbled angel fish, 1 German Blue Ram, and 1 marbled hatchet fish. The Angel and the Ram are especially beautiful!!!

I'm tearing the tank down though, so I need to get these fish out. I also have a 29g aquarium and hood with a t12 (the hood is a little broken). You are welcome to have those if you take the fish! THe 29g is pretty dirty though, it had dried algae and some hard water marks all over the glass. Nothing some vinegar and elbow grease wouldn't fix though!

I cannot currently post my tank. Yu see, I have hideous gravel overtop of my florite and the stupidly hideous cave decoration. I plan on removing both now that my driftwood is good, sealed and soaked and the tank no longer needs the hideous precycled gravel that I keep laying around to start tanks up. Any iteas how to remove it safley? Its a 55 gal, so I cannot d it the same way I did my 10s and 20s, and it needs to happen without clouding the water too badly so my fish are ok. I'm still decideing between sand, nateral river gravel that that fish place sells or just more florite. Any ideas?

Thanks! At the moment it doesn't look so hot, I'm getting some BGA and still a bit of diatoms. I'm not sure how to control the BGA before it gets out of hand. I'm about to do a water change now, I'll just have to see how much I can get out.
