Holy cow David! When you said clean out you meant it. Once you get it all done and replanted and settled down you'll like the results I bet. It'll be interesting to see if your NO3 build up is a lot less after this. I think I'm going to do my 16g like this. It's been set up for 18 months now. I ordered some med light plants for it as I think it's time to give it a facelift. Ordered some African Water Fern and some Hyaugust Hygrophila Corymbosa Angustifolia for it. Ordered some Didiplis Diandra and have Brian_Nano's UG in the 29g. The Glosso didn't carpet for me so it's gone. lol.
How soon will you replant after cleaning and are you getting anything new? OS.

I bought a female Crowntail Betta, frozen bloodworms, some added sponge and a heater for the tank. She has settled in well and already begs for food after 2 feeds. I'm a little concerned that she seems to have a small bubble on each eye. Research says it could be a bacterial infection and that water changes aquarium salt and a med i can't recall the name of to fix the issue. LFS is closed till monday anyway so it has to wait and make do with regular WC.
Thanks, daughters dog, a rescue, it is JR, daschaund sp? A Besenji sp? The african non barking dog
