Okay, first off I'm new to getting pictures onto PT posts, so bear with me.
I spent 6 hours Friday tearing down my 20 gallon tank (which housed fish and plants) and setting up a 29 gallon in it's place. Not only that, but the new tank has flourite in the substrate! OOOOHHHH what a headache. But on to the picutures . . . .
Here's the old tank, taken before takedown:
Setting up the divider for the substrate on new tank:
Here's with the Flourite and Pool Filter Sand:
I had to stick my canister on there with a bunch of floss, getting messy. Don't forget that my other tank is just sitting there, with a bubbler on it and 4" of water!
Planted, but still foggy. VERY hard to plant a tank you can't see into, but I was in a hurry.
Blue Ram likes the sand . . .
So does the Goby . . .
Unfortunately, the 2 Blue Rams did not survive the transition. They made it to the new tank, but couldn't adjust. The 7 black neons, 2 yoyo loaches, and the goby all survived though.
In hindsight, I would NOT set up a tank with flourite in it, while the fish are waiting to be transferred. It was super stressful, but now I have 6" more height to play with plants!! heheeeee
