Title: Tank re Aqua scape in progress fluval 240 Roma
Post by: Xxviroxx on February 24, 2016, 05:32:50 pm
Hey gals n guys,

Soo it all started today by me popping to lfs to rehome my tbars as they was being bully's.

And I've come home with a new filter(fluval 406) and serval hair grass plants loads fishy food and a lighter purse. Wasn't able to fit the new filter and have it run along side my my old 306 as piping not long enough and not enough room behind the tank..So drained the tank half way changed over the filters stuffed as much media as I could in the new filter and got it up and running.

So now I am about to get shoulder deep and do a full rescape of my tank I no I'm now going to be busy fiddling about till around 10ish or even after as I struggle to stop untill i think it's perfect!

So while I take this 10mins to have a cuppa I thought I'd write this and update with before and picture and I'd love to do what you loverly lot think :D picture will come sooooon!

Looking good. The eleocharis will look good when it takes off. Make sure your rock pile is nice and stable.

Ah won't be adding to it for a while and will need to replant some hair grass! My Acaras have decide to spawn!  (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/16/02/26/3ebf4d81cd12175b4fc4ef86e2f1f530.jpg)
