Hi all, here is my somewhat newbie journal. I haven't really pusued freshwater tanks in over a decade, but let's give it a go shall we??
After deciding to scale back my saltwater reef a bit to free up some money and time, I transferred my salty lil friends to the 45 gallon and moved the freshies into larger diggs in the 90 gallon. For about a month and a half, I just tossed everthing in and watched to see what would grow, how fast, and what didn't do to good. I was a bit surprised at my success. I had 2 inch a day growth on one stem plant. (sorry still learning names!) Here's a pic of what tank looked like up till this morning.
So now I desided to get serious, I drained the tank cut out the overflow and hard plumbed the canister to the bulk heads. I thought some valves might just be a good idea
because I also modified the intank plumbing. (Sorry bout the dirty glass)
OK now it's time to put in the hardscape! Had some driftwood soaking in a tote for a while now. Not quite sinky, but not fully floaty! Gotta love rocks and zap straps!
And now we're waiting on the water to fill. Will post when I get some planting done. Opps! just checked! time to plant, darn tank is near full. Guess I'll be up to my armpits on this one!
