Thanks a lot! Its actually pool filter sand. I got it on sale at Home Depot. As far as the fertilizers go I use both root tabs and flourish comprehensive (2x week on that).

This weekend I went over to my friends house who was getting rid of all his fish tanks and the stuff he had with them. I ended picking up a bunch of things for cheap cheap cheap. One of is this stand for a 55 gallon for $10.

I am hoping this weekend I will be able to transfer my tank to it. I also picked up a 40 gallon breeder tank. A filter for it (not sure it will work but am going to try and see). I also got a bunch of slate rock. All for $35 lol

He told me a week ago about the 40b and said I could have anything else I wanted. I just didn't know he had that stand so that was a surprise. He actually gave me the slate rock and filter for free ooh and a test kit I forgot about lol he had other stuff to but I didn't want to be greed. Since was trying to sell the stuff and was just being nice to me and letting me have lots of it.

Yes they do I have always wanted one. It will be awhile probably after the holidays are over before I start working on it.

Its been awhile since I have updated this thread. The tank is due for a major trimming. My poor crypt has melted again :/ This weekend I plan on doing some changes and get it on that stand finally. LoL

I am finally getting to setup my tank on my new tank. I am currently letting my QT run for a few mins before putting in the fish in there for a holding tank. This a 40b and I am using seeded filter media on the filters. Once I get the fish into the tank I am going to tear down the 55 and clean it and change the substrate. Pics coming later tonite when I get done.
