The little office tank
« on: June 26, 2013, 04:34:36 pm »
At work we have a little interpet fish box 48l

I picked it up for the office a few months back complete with a stand, light, heater, blue gravel, plastic plants and shipwreck.

Anyway after cycling it was stocked with a few hardy fish and has been running with out issues.

so after looking at it for the past few weeks and getting a bit bored i'm going to change to a sand substrate and go mildly planted....

pics of the current setup will follow when I get home.

My question first of all is, as this will be done on a budget, I'm going with playsand, but will I need any substrate underneath? my home tank I went with the same sand but with tetra complete under?

and is fert dosing necessary? again I dose easy carbo at home daily.

I have some spare bogwood at home which I will soak and plant wise will be sticking with sag and java etc, keeping it simple and easy to maintain..
