PaulG Thanks!

Those peppers were HOT.

atom What a great idea for the HOB.

GMYukonon24s That's so simple but still so nice.

radioman This will look nice when it all fills in.

PaulG Still using the sponge media the filter came with, chopped it up into small pieces in order to accommodate root growth.

ModusVivendi I have the same question as blue stems about the peace lilly in the filter. Also, do you have the roots in any kind of plant container or are they exposed in the filter?

Cool idea! Do the plants replace all the filter media?

somewhatshocked It looks great. Can't wait to see it with livestock and really hope you add something!

PaulG No fish so I'm not too bothered right now, not sure when I'll add anything. Didn't intend to have them exposed they just kinda found their way to the top!

somewhatshocked Hope you haven't experienced any major nitrate spikes with having so much osmocote exposed.

That kitty litter looks great, though. Really great.

PaulG Just kitty litter with some osmocote. Slow release fertiliser granules which are dirt cheap and safe for fish.

somewhatshocked Nice peppers! And nice tank, as well.

What sort of substrate are you using?
10-10-2012 04:38 PM
PaulG Here in England at a chain called Pets at Home. They've been discontinued

TonyK I love that tank. Where did you find it?
