Howdy

New member here. I have kept tanks from 2 gallons up to 60 over the past 30 years off and on. Both salt and fresh. At the moment I have a 29 gallon fresh. LED lights, Sunsun 302 canister filter. I use all glass substrate. Removing my prior rock and moving to glass allows me to keep control of my PH and water hardness. I use wood or chunks of coral to tweek if needed. All water changes are DI water. I hate chemicals. I have some plants, moss, tetras, a betta , frog and mystery snails.

Welcome!!! Look forward to seeing some pictures if you're able to post them. I've never heard of using all glass before. Does that create a "frosty" look in the substrate?

Some of the glass is smooth and other that is tumbled has a frosty look. I added some pics to my album. I am having problems adding to posts? There is a close of of one of my khuli's so the glass is very visible.

Let's see if this works...

Not quite. On the mobile app the link takes you to a post from many, many years ago.
On the browser it should show up fine though.

I usually use my phone. I'm hardly ever on my computer anymore. Nice to know its not me being dense.

Thanks for trying.

I have found it challenging posting pics from albums using the mobile app. Much easier to do using the non-mobile browser.
Using the mobile app, you can post directly from your devices photo library or camera:

That's an interesting look! Kind of otherworldly almost. Your fish shows up well!

Here is another shot where you can the seaglass and the tumbled. Very different textures. Also a larger glass rock. All of the edges are smooth to keep everything safe.
