This was the tank before the current rescape, which is unfinished.

I only did top offs maybe once a week or so. Stocking was 14 Flame Tetras, ammonia reading was always zero, nitrites zero, nitrates never over 10ppm. Movement provided by small pump. Tank was only running 9 months before I had to move house, gave the fish to my mum.

I did make a mistake with this tank and that was using John Innes 3, my water was already very hard and this sent it up further. Other than that the only thing I'm doing different this time round is removing the pump and heater, but that's only because I don't want to this time round.
