Not happy with the way things are so decided to do a total rescape. First time doing actual aquascaping rather than just sticking things in open areas. Divided the tank in a 1:1.618 ratio and put the focal point, which is the triangular piece of bogwood at that mark and moving to the right.
Hey! Did you just tear down your tank today? How were you able to fill it up and introduce livestock again so quickly? When I add flourite into my tanks the water is cloudy as all hell for a good 3 to 4 days. Not sure if that's bad but I don't add anything in during that time.
Also, the DW looks a bit bare. What would you think of strapping some moss or something onto it?
I did it on Friday 11/25/11. Only took 1 full day and a water change to have the water clear again. That pic was after the WC. I'm also running Purigen so I'm sure that helps to clear things up.
I saved about 50-60% of the tank water in rubbermaid bins and put it back in after the dirting. So it was just like doing a 50% water change. Livestock go right back in after everything is all put back together. No ill effects and no NH3 spike.
There's a little java moss on there. I've had that covered with java moss and riccia, They grow so out of control though. Give it a month it'll be filled with moss...and all the crap that gets caught in the moss.
