Journal: 16g Tall

September 24, 2007

I have sifted and cleaned the silt. I was forbiden by my parents to boil the silt so I just decided to place it like that in the fish tank. I will be adding the water tomorrow (not today, today was alcohol day) and start the cycling process. I bought some plants so they should be arriving in the mail this week. I will be updating as I do everything. I will be doing a fishless cycle.

Silt looks good !! Might be a little much though. I'd reduce it to about 1 1/2 in. thick. Can't wait for some plants. What are you planning on putting in there?
