today one my lights broke so went to pick up a new one, came back removed all water & replanted all HC in much finer patches & moved around some stones, i will leave the scape like this now for a while to let every thing settle

i was thinking of changing 60-70% every other day, cos theres no fish this should be ok, the filter i used is of my other tank & has been running for 3 months on that tank, the only fish in there at the mo are 12 wild green neons, 5 otos & 2 german blue rams, once this tank is cycled i will move otos & neons over not sure about the rams though, i really want to give them away iv had them for 13 months, my longest lasting rams, im going to set my other tank up as mbuna clichlid tank
