Default The big day

Well the substrate swap went pretty smooth
started this morning with my daughter keen to earn her pocket money .





all the hard work was done for me lol





tannins in my water from the peat


sand substrate. not as black as i was hoping for.


filling up


All shrimp and snails are back in now Total time taken - 5 hrs , RO maker is very slow

So im happy now that i have control of the water perimeters, which I havent notched it down too rapid , over the nxt week the PH will be brought down to 6.5 and TDS 130

current stats
