It's up from the basement, rinsed in hot water sitting on the cabinet/stand along with all the equipment waiting for me to carefully decide on the lighting upgrade. Taking it slow and carefull this time with my decision making. At the same time, one should never obsess about stuff, one must at some point make a decision and just ride out the results.Deciding between spending a little more money and more work (CO2
) to grow almost anything I want, or to go the easy less expensive route and settle for the challenge of growing what I can creatively which sounds tempting when you have two small children. I have already purchased pool filter sand. Thinking about either having a nutrient rich bottom layer or not having to worry about potential "mud soup" and just going with root tabs/additives to enrich substrate, although I here Seachem's turns the light coloured (yes that's how we spell colored in Canada) sand black. Yikes. Guess you can't disturb the bottom there either! Lol. That is my biggest decision right now because it's difficult to change the substrate once it's in. As for fish I love the gourami species, dwarf cichlids, congo tetras, neon tetras and really love corys! I wish I could afford two tanks though because I also love alot of larger cichlids. That's alotta-love, I know .
