Cat litter molly tank
I just moved and re did my 20 gallon with cat litter. Why cat litter? Cat litter was like 50 lbs for like $5.00. I got it from a canadian store called no frills. It is the non clumping unscented stuff.
I was originally planning to use safe t sorb, but wanted to test this out.
Here is what I am using for now:
20 gallon high
15w flourescent light
Substrate: No name unscented cat litter
Mollies of different kinds
Corydoras, panda and false julii
I am not listing brands of my equipment since the focal point in my journal is the cat litter and how it does over time. Also, I plan on changing the equipment around soon and replacing lighting so will update on that and hopefully add more plants.
I posted a picture of the tank after I filled it the first day.
I rinsed the cat litter by about 3-5 lbs at a time until the water came mostly clear which took about 50 rinses total. The water at first ran very muddy looking and cleared up gradually.
Day 1, plants are not protesting and bnp seems to really love the new landscape and is out a lot more.
