Beginning of December visited and LFS
and always wanted some common carp however the lad at the shop didn't know the difference between carp and tench so ended up with 2 carp and a tench sadly the tench was very thin and not looking it's best but have since been feeding very heavy and it's starting to fill out
Since I'm having to feed quite heavily also decided I better add some more biological media so added nearly 2kilo of alfagrog to the filter this should help over time left the old media in this runs before the alfagrog so will help speed the alfagrog.
The 2 common carp are a friendly pair and have so far been model citizens one thing I have noticed is with them and the tench they do help turn over the bottom nicely which caused issues with detritus/poo settling in the tank.
I was not happy with that so changed out the 2 x 3000LPH powerheads for 2 x 75000LPH powerheads this stired the tank right up and now having 17000LPH of flow in the tank combined with filter return flow rate this got all the detritus/poo nicely suspended into the water column allowing the filter to do its job and pull it out just ment I had to change the filter floss a couple of extra times to while the filter caught all the poo and caught up all the stock dont seem bothered by the flow ans I dont have any dead spots.
Here is a few pictures of the stock and the tank
There will be some changes in the next few weeks plant wise but I'll update as I go
