I'm sorry. Of course you can.

That's where they hide.

Set up the 55g today. Have 2 panty hose full of gravel from an established tank and a aqua clear 50 which has plenty of bb in it. In going to start a fish in cycle in about a week.

Put in all the plants I bought yesterday. I got some fish too- black widow tetras and peppered cories. So far, all of them look happy in my quarantine tank. The tetras are teeny-tiny but act so fierce at feeding time
I think I'm getting better at acclimatizing gently but I'm still clumsy handling the bags.

75% water change on the 36. I've been neglecting it for the past month and a half it so. It felt good to be able to rescape the rocks and such.

I did a water change on one 20G and played around with the hardscape on a second 20G i'm about to cycle. I left the tanks for a while since i had other things to do. I finally got round to finalizing my hardscape for the second 20G (been toying with it since friday) but didn't really like the location of my stone pile and it just didn't quite fit together like i wanted. I had another pile of stones i collected last weekend in a bucket which i had forgotten till today. First two stones i picked out gave me the finishing touches and fit the structure perfectly. I then got round to planting. Looks quite nice at the moment. Then i filled it and had a mini disaster when i put my tray for protecting the substrate in a bit of bacon fat while filling the last 20L bucket to go in . I'll just let it harden before removing it if nobody has a better solution for removing it. I haven't placed a filter anywhere near the tank.

Now it's way past my bedtime. I didn't finish planting and filling till 1.30am. 2.5 hours worth of trimming roots breaking plants to promote bushy growth and planting, but hopefully this time the absence of goldfish will allow things to stay where i plant them while they establish. I'm pretty happy with the nights work.
