Out with the old in with the new !!!

Postby Puffer King on Sun Jan 01, 2012 9:27 am

Finally got around to giving lillys tank a bit of a overhaul , so its out with the silver sand and in with black micro gravel :) , donated a piece of bog wood with anubias from one the other tanks and bartered on a nice new big piece from a lfs , so have taken a few anubias cuttings and zip tied em' on till they take up root and attach themselves , still very much a work in progress ...need a lot more plants to go in ....... Well lilly seems happy with the make over so far :) , although she didn't at first like me taking her sand out ! , Oh and shes got a new temporary tank mate , the gold barb i plonked in there was just to see if colours change with a darker substrate , although im pleased to say colours are looking more vibrant and tottally awesome . The barb will be coming out as soon as i can catch the little b*gger ! , or if lilly gets it first ! lol

I've always liked black substrate because its a good contrast for light colored fish.
Kind regards,
