I ALMOST did it with my 110 gallon. I was so excited to get it filled up and running I never even thought of pulling it out for the filters. Thank goodness I realized before it got too heavy to move, I would've been so mad. Lol
Thank you, I found some neat looking black rocks with red streaks in them online that I might get for it, and add some red and grey sandstone that I get locally to them- should make the colors in the rocks and the fish pop nicely. Picking rocks and plants is probably my favorite part of setting up the new tanks!

Doing a water change on the 56 gallon now (sucked up all the detritus and now I'm sitting back while the water changer does the filling for me) and I guess I annoyed my bettas. Most of the girls were nipping at me the whole time my hands were in the tank! Especially my little blue crowntail. She wouldn't let up! Gonna call her Killer now. Maybe spawning brought out some protective instinct in her - she's the momma of my betta fry.

Yup. I've done two and have three more to go. Taking my time between tanks so I don't get too worn out to finish them all!

Reorganized my rocks a little, removed what I think was a small sundial snail, and used the new reef test kit to do a total tank test.

whats your pointers on keeping your plants alive
Thank you!! I have an extremely low tech setup. About as low tech as you can get! I have 2 twist in fluorescent light bulbs (bought them at petsmart and the packaging said that they would support plant growth,) I have floramax plant substrate capped with the gravel. I also added root tabs since they all have roots. I dose with Seachem's Flourish liquid fertilizer once a week (IMO, its best to alternate ferts. I learned that here) and I dose with API CO2 booster daily. I prefer using excel, but I bought what was available since it was necessary. Lol.
Love your reefs! My reef has a long way to go!! I'm upgrading to 100 gallons soon. I have a thread if you want to follow. I also have a thread for my current 55 gallon reef.

Thank you! I'm going for very natural with this one. I keep finding myself wishing minnows were not cold water fish. Then they could live with my Cory cats. Lol. I have zebra danios. I have a piece of drift wood that I already bought to replace the decoration, but it still needs to be soaked and boiled. Then I'm adding either java fern or java moss to grow on the drift wood. Which do y'all think?

I'm wanting a carpet to fill in. Will having Cory cats be a problem?
