Went out and bought a 5 gallon tank from walmart to start up its going to be a FOWLR, maybe a perc or two and a blood shrimp we will see.

Now if i get say 3 gallons of water from Dougs tank and ad it to the tank. Do i have to wait for the rock to get settled its the dead fiji that i have about 20 lbs i would say in there or 15 ..

i have already changed the aquascaping 4 times in the last 45 mins .

man i didnt think i could get that much rock in there holy COW.....

any ways time to watch the tank

Well already I'm thinking of upgrading to a 10 gal tank. and have my hagen glo-mats power the lighting and run 2 x20 w at 40 watts.

Still debating a sand bed or not or even putting on te skimmer i have ..

IT's started

ah haha you a funny guy. Actually i have a 10 gal tank at home ,but the wife has gold fish in it i may get that one . We will see i will just have to get some wood to hook up the other lights. and get those 2 ft actinic off ya. hell you should build me that canopy and take a drive to come visit me in shilo, bring some sand and a few worms and help me get this tank on track too. what a think of that since its your tuen to come out.
