= ^ _ ^ = New tank update

= ^ _ ^ =

I suppose it has been almost three weeks now since I first set up the tank , filled it with gravel and topped it up to the line with water , I have allready added the chemicals and the internal filters should be doing there thing now with the bacteria that were in the Sera Nitrivec.

I purchased some aquarium plants today and have since put them in , plants like Wisteria , twisted and normal Vallis , Cabomba and the Amazon sword , of course there are many others but unfortunately they never came with a label when I bought them , my landscaping attempt being good has possibly been let down by my random and erratic planting scheme , but maybe thats good . ?

Also this morning I bought a Panda Loach , seems a quite handsom chappie and it was the only one left so I just had to have it , he sat in the puffed up polywotzit bag for at least 3/4 an hour maybe more and he is the first in the tank.

I may add the rest later tonight or maybe in the next couple of days I will have to see how the water clears again , and what happens when Stuart A.K.A reznik come around tonight or tommorow morning.

so things are on the move.

I think the water is clear but there are two different flourescent bulbs and they seem to give the impression the water is cloudy , I have an Eheim Aquaball with a small filter sponge going and the Juwel tanks standard filter system going , if it looks like the tank needs more filtration I have an Eheim Aquaball 2210 at standby.

I keep following everything you post You know I want to see pics when fish are added etc! So be sure to post! Btw,your new aquarium looks very nice! I love it. What is the name for the substrate for plants,do you know? I'm going to start with live plants & Sasami has been a big help in telling me about live plants but i'm not having luck finding substrate at all...

Well on the way back from Lidl in Beckenham I popped in on Kinfisheries again , now that the new tank is all set up I bought 9 more Neons just to complete the group , I also aquired a mini betta as it were or in other words a Guppy , it's on it's todd and of the blue variety.

The old Bay fronted tank has now been emptied of water and most of the water snails that I can find have been moved to the new tank , of course it's only a matter of time before I have too many and have to give some away or use the pippete and drop the nuclear snail destroying mushroom.

the new Neons look a bit pale so they are most likely stressed at the moment , but I m sure they will settle down soon , there are a couple of tears in the guppie's tail fin but they will heal up soon , the water is completely clear now and all the plants are loose and it look a bit more natural in there.

Also spied a blob of what appears to be snail eggs on the Wisteria I bought , the babies are slowly growing and will soon emerge , they will probably be compltely different to the snails I allready have.

Just a matter of scrubbing the floor now where the old tank was now , and making it sparkle , then I can move the Fig plant back into that corner , if it still has any leaves left on it.

= ^ _ ^ =

And only then..

Pics , pics , pics
