Funny you ask about the substrate, seeing I was about to ask a question about that
Anyways, I was looking at Seachem Flourite Black, Volcanit, or Eco complete. I need to make sure it is a gravel, and stays a gravel. The reason for this is being that I have a power gravel vacuum, at it cannot handle sand, only gravel. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...4&pcatid=15484
I prefer black, but that volcanit looks nice.
As for the tank, I am not "giving" it away, yet letting it go for CHEAP!!! Stand, tank, live plants, 2 turbo CO2, CO2 refills, penguin filter, extra filter cart., Coralife light, etc, plus throwing in the 28 gl bowfront. Taking the first $300. Have to get rid of them once I get the 210. Wife's rule. I get to keep the 10 gl because I keep the crayfish/crabs in there (puffer food), but will be moving it underneath the in the stand of the 210.
Here are a couple pics - there are more plants than in the pic now. http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l2...g?t=1198738765 http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l2...g?t=1198738814
