    Hi Diana, I just read a post of yours from 2012 regarding a fishless cycle to start a tank. I did do this years ago on a non planted tank with an Aquaclear filter ( it was a science project for my daughter)but am getting ready to start a new 46 gallon bow front which I will plant on eco complete fine substrate. I also will have a new XP3 filter. Any /all suggestions are appreciated! I do have some established media but it is in my Aquaclear 50 which is filtering my non planted 25 gallon. That tank has small river stones on the bottom. Can I simply put some of these in a stocking and place them in the tank during the fishless ammonia cycle? Thanks!

    Hi Diana,
    My daughter in Alamo, CA is doing a complete upgrade to her swimming pool and surrounds. She is busy at her job and asked me to contact someone who could help with an upgraded design. She currently has the pool and hot tub lined with lava rock and wants to get rid of that with a more beautiful design. If you are interested please email me at or 831-372-7666 (I'm in Pacific Grove). Thanks, ...Ron
