Wow, my alkalinity jumped form like 7.8 to 12! Might have to adjust the buffer solution lol. Ph is still at 7.8 though. Bummer. Figuring it will rise as the day goes on. also hoping a nice large water change will help as well.

I soooo don't feel like pwc's today, could be that its still ealry for me yet. lol

I was strictly a freshie girl myself since the 80's LOL. But the sw side called to me and the rest is history. LOL

Juts means my levels are out of whack from where they are supposed to be.
A huge eater change should help but with a 125g tank thats a lot of water. LOL

I had my pico set up with black sand and that looked great.

In my 20L I have cimmunity fish but the back is painted black and I used black sand in there and it really looks awesome to me. makes everything stand out more.

I wanna redo the back of my 40g to pure black. I bought it and it was painted dark grey with white specks.
Do you know how to remove paint on tanks?

I JUST had to remove the painted background off a tank I sold. It took me 3 days of scraping with a razor blade attached to a handle type thing that I got at home depot. If it's latex paint it should come off quite easily, and in big pieces. The one I did was some kind of marine paint or something but only came off in small pieces. It was a tedious project but I got it done.

Good luck with yours! Let us see how it turns out.
