Redone my tanks, AGAIN!! Just tore my 10g vivarium (on the home page) down, was getting mosguito larvae in it and didnt want it breeding in my house. Ijust put in two inches of self-made compost topped with my ugly blue and black gravel. Going to use it to grow out my plants before putting them in the tank with my goldfish, they are too destructive to put little fragile plants in there with them. Got a banana plant in there the fish already attacked while I was sleeping, it is doing better though. I also put my bulbs I bought from WalMart in there to get them started as the fish ate every new thing that could grow out of them, already got one that's about three inches long. I even threw a couple plants in there that I found in my yard that resembled the aquatic plants I've been researching so vigorously. They are growing fine
I am also growing some Java moss "cigars" in there for use in cracks of my rocks. Almost too much in there and none in my 55
And to top it all off, I just broke the primer handle on my Fluval 304. Hope this superglue works good!!
The 55g got totally redone, for the fourth time in two weeks!! I knew I didn't have enough gravel but I put things together anyway. I built my "mountain range" and filled it up n put my fish in, and they sucked right through the gravel into the dirt
I couldn't get the water to clear up to save my life. Now I spread the rock out and used bigger rocks to take up more space. Now I've got about an inch or more of cap over my dirt, now lets see them suck through all that. Any way, filter broke and water cloudy so no pics tonight, and I cannot describe the layout. I like it very much, my favorite one I've done yet
Will post some pics tomorrow. As for tonight, gonna be an even later (earlier?) night than it was supposed to be so I've got to hope superglue fixes this so I can get my filter going for an hour or so and get my fish in it and fed. Till tomorrow.
