Rescaping

Post by Alasse on Sun Jan 08, 2012 3:30 pm

So all the other tanks are looking spiffy *L* Now its the 5fts turn. Tomorrow i'll be removing all the hardscape, giving the gravel a deep clean, then rescaping it. I bought some new lava rock, so will be adding that in with the rocks i already have, i think i will be moving the large root out for a bit as the tannins are annoying me, it will go to the pond for 6months or so. So it will, chances are, be mainly rock again. Dunno depends if i like the look, otherwise i will be buying carbon and loading the internal filter with it to remove the tannins. Regardless its gonna get a new look *LOL*

The fish will be staying in the tank through this. I'm sure they will be impressed lol

It will be busy yep, but fun. I am also going to attack the cherry shrimp tank, the java fern has gone crazy, so am going to thin it out some. And if i've got my hands in there i will prolly move stuff around *LOL*
