I'm transferring everything from my 10g to this tank, and using the filter media , substrate and plants from that tank + new plants to cycle it. Right now i'm transferring plants over and it is too cloudy/dusty from the black sand for me to see anything. It's also ugly. The penguin 100b isn't doing anything to clear up the dust or help cycle it, plus it's too noisy to run at night. I need something bigger with moar power that I can fit at least part of an AQ70 sponge and some filter floss in until I transfer the full AQ70 over when it's ready.
I'm sorry, I assumed everyone has read all my other threads because that's how I am, so I didn't explain it in the OP.
