My friends have always thought my obsession with aquariums (especially plants) was a little strange, but i always take it with a grain of salt. Be humorous about it-- if they don't see you reacting negatively to their comments, the satisfaction they receive from bugging you will quickly dwindle.

Nice tank, i like the new scape. Cleaning up the aquasoil on top of the sand would give the front a much cleaner look though. I think once the H. pinnatifida grows out, it'll really look spectacular! Nice video too-- i like your enthusiasm.
Thanks for the encouragement
Should I clean the edges with like a paintbrush or something? It seems the ADA rakes are a bit pricey.

Its a Marineland Reef Capable LED. It extends 6 additional inches on each side, so I just bent it down 90 degrees.

Siphoning it out would probably be easiest, but that would mean that you'd have to put more sand in the tank because you'd suck up a bit of it as well. But if it doesn't bother you, then no need to siphon it out!

Keeping aquasoil and sand apart from each other is really hard to do when you don't have a strong barrier (usually rocks) between them.

Yeah I don't have much sand, so yeah.

It came down as it ruined the floor under it; the scape got destroyed in the process. I am under too much stress from school and such to put it back up, so I am selling the tank, the 2 filters, and the heater for $100. Please PM me so I can get started faster on a newer smaller version. Have a better night than me

Hey, what happened?

Whatever it was, spend a day or two away from the tank. Every time I make a decision when pissed, I live to regret it.

I put a towel over the top to keep it dark for the fish cuz they were spooked from the move back; the towel fell in and siphoned out 10 gallons, having the filters waterfall, destroying the scape and flooding my room. Thankfully everything was saved except a power strip(good thing it was short-circuit resistant, otherwise it would burn down the house), my substrate, 1 fish, and a bunch of plants. Oh, and Of Course my beautiful aquascape. I've decided because my house is very old and in an earthquake zone, I'm setting up a smaller tank in a safer spot. I'll find a way to redo the scape somehow. I'll probably do a 45 cm shallow cube and sell my tank, heater, and filters.

That sucks. I've done this as well during a black out of the tank to kill algae. I'm sure were not the only ones.

Yeah my dad was lucky enough to get all the water sucked out of the floor. Good thing we have a wet/dry vac! If We didn't, well, let's just say that right underneath my room is the kitchen ceiling, which is made out of fluorescent panels. It's also kinda comforting to hear that I'm not alone, and other people have made the bounce-back, too. For right now my fish are in a bowl with my bolbitis and the java ferns and my tank is sealed up with saran wrap and my housekeeper is spraying it every 2 hours.
