    Chocolate Gouramis - I have Fry and need Advice

    I know,if they didn't eat so well I'd be a bit concerned but they have great appetites and little fat tummies,so maybe they'll suddenly put on a growth spurt lol!

    Chocolate Gouramis - I have Fry and need Advice

    Next Stage - Plants?

    The current situation with the big tank is that we have the wood and substrate in place.Two of the eventual four 150w halides are here and the tank has cover glasses. The sump will be fitted in approx 2/3 weeks so there is no filtration/Co2,but we can put heaters/water circulation pumps inside...

    Just happened to be walking through the dining room by the new tank when I saw that someone has already moved in(and I haven't even cycled it yet :lol: ) Grabbed the camera to show you all: Needless to say the tank is now covered,but at least I'm confident that the wood is secure :roll:

    Diary of a Rather Large Tank

    The bracing bars are completely dry now so the wooden supports have been taken off.Billy has also siliconed some glass wedges to the floor of the tank to make extra sure the wood can't kick forwards into the glass. Next will be the substrate :)

    How many weeds do I need?

Are there any particular types of carpet plants that work better with this method,I'm guessing HC but what about something like a pygmy sword or crypt? I've never tried to grow a...
