Lilly's mountainscape-rescape and dry start update
Well I just could help myself. The main reason I decided to get back into the aquarium hobby after close to,15 years away from it, is my daughter Lilly. She's a yar old now and when watches fish in aquariums her face lights up. Follow by lots of excited pointing and oohs and aahs. But, the two tanks I have running are in my bedroom. Consequently she doesn't get to see them very much.
So, I "had" to start yet another tank for her playroom so she can watch as much as she'd like. I got a used 40 gallon breeder style tank w/stand for $25 about 80lbs of rock from some guys pond for $15 and 40lbs of Activflora planted tank substrate for $50 andI'm gettin started.
The price of substrate makes me want to puke and this stuff isn't the most expensive. So I decided to use the Activflora as a cap on top of top soil/filter sand. The used tank has some scratches and I need to clean the calcium of the glass still. But here's the initial hardscape and dirt. I'm going to ad the activflora and plants in a few days when my light arrives. Let me know what you think.
