Pretty tank. It doesn't look TOO bad. But then again, you've been cleaning it. Do you know what filter media is being used? Don't toss out that media!!! Just give it a swish in old tank water. If you toss out that media your tank will have to cycle all over again :P

As long as you don't toss the media, you can clean off your decor.

As far as stocking....are you sure that's how many fish is in there? It doesn't look too badly stocked. Then again, the picture isn't level with the tank so there maybe some fish hidden.

Brace Yourself.....Winter Is Coming

Oh yes there are 20+ convicts various sizes, including a handful of albinos. They just have a million places to hide... When they all come out its pretty awesome. Thanks for the tips, I will check that site when I get home. The current tank placement makes it impossible to get a level picture. Once I have it moved I'll get proper pics. As for the filters, there are two different ones. I don't know exactly what they are. I'll ask the fish guy on Saturday. I can't wait to get them home. They are a piece of my Gramma and I feel so close to her when I'm "doing a tune up" (as my poppy says). I can't wait to learn all about her passion.
