Fish waste stayed on top of the sand so it was easy to vac it out. I used fert tabs and dry ferts in the tank for the plants.

Re: Starting with a blank slate

I figured that if I got to see what Susan looks like then I should return the favor and let people see me. I learned it is not that hard to up load a pic. I hope I didn't do anything wrong when posting it.

Re: Starting with a blank slate

Also, that black sand you used for this tank, I have a question about it. Did the fish waste manage to get down to the plants roots? Or did the plants get their nutrients some other way

That's sad. I want my next house to have a slab floor in 1 room (besides the garage) to use as my aquarium room, but I'm stuck in this house for a few more years. Really don't want a slab floor in the entire house...

Re: Starting with a blank slate

Any new pictures? I'm wanting to do a planted tank, and you gave me some great ideas (then again, my tanks look like compared to yours ). Thank you for all the pictures!

Is your tank still cichlid and pleco?

I cycled my tank for 21 days. I used ammonia from ace hardware store for the faithless cycling. Thank you for your help.
