  1. The FUGLY29---Painted Background

    This is my first time ever painting the back glass of an aquarium. It was very quick and easy! Yesterday I bought a 4" foam roller from HDepot. I already had a jar of acrylic black leftover from Nossi College of Art. I used a butter knife to apply a blobs to the back of tank and just rolled it out.

  2. The FUGLY29---This tank is CLEAN!

    Rinsed it out, added a few gallons of water from hose pipe. Then added several cups of Bleach. Took an old AC50 sponge and cleaned all surfaces of the tank. Dumped and rinsed very good. I then left it to dry in the sun, and wind.
    Still need to rinse the sand and gravel, plus accessories.

  3. The FUGLY29---The Clean-Up Begins

    Yesterday I tore down the F29. I moved the bars(3) and ABN to the 10g instead of euthanizing (will order meds for final attempt to clear columnaris there).

    I put the sand in one bucket, gravel in another and all else in yet another bucket filled with bleach solution(1cup per gal of water). All are soaking for now.

    Today I will clean the tank and glass top with bleach, rinse and dry.

  4. The Fugly29 --Columnaris wins...

    I give up. I have lost many fish systematically from fungal/tailrot/bloody wounds like symptoms.
    Down to 3 barbs and long fin ABN pleco. I'm going to euthanize the barbs and rehome the ABN.

    Started thread, "Can I save my BB colony?". Learned I will need to sterilize the ceramic media, and kill the tank and other equipment with bleach and/or boiling.
    *glad I hadn't added driftwood yet!**

    Here are some top responses I received from thread:
