Whoo-hoo. Got $70 trading in plants. Store credit but that will go a long way to getting substrate later on.

Very true! Nice to get something back - the crypts were the best. Aponogetons should of gone for more but the store owner grows them out the back. But happy just to get it done and dusted else probably would of just dumped them eventually.


Tank has cleared a bit and looks ..... somewhat ..... boring lol. Still getting used to it. It's definitely simple. Needs another water change and remove more floating roots but getting there. Some anubias, lots of java fern and a clump of bolbitus - and I have to confess tank base is decently covered by plants so possibly, just maybe it was a bit jam-packed before.

Wowzers!

That amount will be good for the future tank build.

Maybe just a little bit jam packed, lol!

Much more simple now.

Well - Australian prices But, much better than I thought. Should get a few big bags of substrate later on. Add some driftwood, etc, etc. Maybe some big pieces of driftwood.


And still got the little boxes that stick onto glass from Hans to try at some stage. And have a small bag left of good plant substrate for that.

I know, I know - so much space and extra volume with all the gravel and fake rocks gone. Down the track will just put back in the driftwood I have and some large pieces of driftwood and that will do it.


Photos of CO2 reactors - first one has never been cleaned really. Needs a clean but still running quiet even though a bit of dirt on it. Bubbles everywhere.


The second has much lower CO2 bubble count but is not as quiet and getting clogged with roots again. Needs I think a fourth clean.


Also need to do some tank testing on ammonia but mainly been testing pool so been a little slack. But testing pool a lot as was 36C (96F) last night from solar blanket.

Added back in some driftwood - few small pieces. My excuse is it was for the catfish / maybe hide the CO2 reactors but all that space in tank is disconcerting...
