Thread: 5ft tank build

  1. Default 5ft tank build

    So the maingano are now gone. Decor removed. Substrate removed

    Have changed over to PFS (not sure how this is gonna go, it looks to have like a shell grit in it and it may make my PH rise, something i will definately not want in this tank). I have added 1 bag and need to get another bag this week

    The loaches are loving the extra room they have as the tank is currently only using some lava rock as hiding places until the new decor is sorted

    I raided a dead tree on my way home from work, pieces are sitting in the pond (as best they will fit *L*) will let em sit there for a bit while i get other things sorted

    No pics as yet, still gathering stuff for it, but rest assured pics will come soon!
    Lots of tanks

    I like Loaches! What kind do you have? My very first fish was a Weather Loach.
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Aren't they great! The only thing that was frustrating about, Kato - that's what I named him - was he was so destructive! He dug everything up!

    I have Clown Loaches :)

    Tank now is basically scaped, i need to pic up a few smaller swords and then maybe a bit of fine tuning.

    The tank is currently cloudy, due to me adding another bag of PFS and then i planted it. I will have a tannin issue, but nothing water changes wont keep under control. Will do a large water change tomorrow, to help settle it. Will also need to do a canister clean very soon.

    Pics as soon as it has cleared up

    I wanted to go a more simple look more substrate room for the clowns to frolic on. This is not fully finished as yet, a couple more plants to be added, but this gives a general idea of the look.

    The water is tannin stained and still cloudy from the full substrate change. (please excuse the angle of the pic)
