Good stuff Sophie!

Well, I'm starting over with the water. I just siphoned out about 40 gallons of water, but took advantage of the empty tank to put in some of my hard scaping.

Some plants will be coming today too, I I'll get those planted before I'm up to my armpits in tank water. I'll be prepping driftwood for the next week or so, so I'll be able to put the bubble-wrap down where the driftwood will be going in order to filler-up again.

*sigh*

For a fifty gallon tank, all it took was one five gallon bucket--and not even a whole bucket.

Actually, I'm Mom (deb), but I'll take it. She's cuter.
