Let the sand settle....then stired it up again to even out the sand bed....do you guys run your return pumps and and overflows while the Sand is settling? I don't want the dust getting on all the equipment in my sump..... The tank is already going to need a cleaning when it's done settling

Hard to see but it in the drift woods peak. I was thinking it needed to be a bit lower and you just confirmed it. Lo

Picked up some drift wood and other supplies for the 12 gallon edge I bought. Will be setting it up next weekend when I get home. So excited... Always exciting to design a new tank.

I added decor, and fish. Spent about an hour moving everything an inch to the left, then a quarter inch to the right, then angled it a bit this way or that till it was juuuuuuust, RIGHT!!! Now I'm gonna buy more fish tomorrow, and I'm waiting on the last bits of decor from the Amazon.com so I can finish it. Pics tomorrow

Just keep an eye on that thing. And most fish can go days without food. How long are you going to be gone?

Going on Vacation

Hello j...

Aquarium fish can easily manage without food for a couple of weeks. When I go on vacation, I feed a little more often for a couple of weeks before I leave. A couple days prior, I stop feeding and do a little larger than normal water change. The fish spend the time foraging for any leftovers and I come home to a clean tank.

Thanks for the advice guys!! I will be out of town for about 3 weeks. I have the feeder set to feed very small amounts(not anywhere near how much I usually feed) once a day. I have shrimp, cories, and snails that are a good cleaning crew. So hopefully that will be okay?
