Yessir. Now that i have time to focus on my tanks i am finally going to give his tank a much needed overhaul.

I went with white silica sand originally because i was going to do a black tiger oscar but ended up with an albino one.

I am gonna switch the white silica sand with black diamond blasting sand. Ima follow that up with a 3d background with a blue sand waterfall.

Awesome! Definitely need pics of that waterfall maybe one day I'll take on the Oscar. JD is enough work for me right now with x2 week tank cleaning.

Today I cleaned up my 20g tall and did a little plant trimming. Unfortunately I am having some dying leaves on my sword and my spiralis. It's a low tech tanks, but I'd like to keep them living and green them up. Dosed them with some Fluval plant food. Hopefully that will perk them up. If not I am going to order some root tabs.

You can also make your own with Osmocote Plus Indoor and Outdoor fertilizer. Much cheaper in the long run and really easy to make.
