The ammo is starting to drop now and the nitrites are getting higher. So good start after 3 days. I have loads of media from my small 54 litre so it better happen tomorrow then I'll get fish hopefully on Sunday.

I'm never going to the usual fish shop I go to. So hopefully I don't otherwise I'm putting a hole in the tank and it can be a trophy cabinet. Lol

Yeah mine was just a local place though. And never again.
I have just a submersible filter in tree for the good media to be pumped through. And then the main filter system goes through the glass into fluval 305 system?
Better hurry and cycle bores of looking at water? Haha

I am in the process of this kind of tank as well. What sand did you get and did you do anything to it before putting it in?


Sorry to hijack*
