nothing more thrilling than the begining of a new tank !!

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Which sand did you use there; is it play sand...cause it looks so bright/ white?

i was talking to a friend that works in a fish store the other day and she was suggesting pool filter sand that you would get at a pool and hottub supply store if you want bright white sand that won't cloud up the water. It also is built for pool filters, therefore it won't mess with the hardness of your water.

47 gal tall freshwater - 6 Balloon Mollies, 6 Silver Sailfin Mollies, 2 African Black Knife Fish, Albino Bristlenose Pleco, Black Pleco, Black Algae Eating Shrimp, and 5 Emerald Corys.
36 gal bowfront freshwater (temporary, i sprung a leak in my 55!)- 2 Oscars, 1 Electric Blue Lobster (Crayfish), and a Striped Raphael Catfish.
46 gal bowfront freshwater - 2 Opaline and 2 Gold Gouramis, 3 Pink Kissing Gouramis, 3 Golden Dojo Loaches (Weather Loaches), 3 Assorted Angelfish, and a Farlowella.

I know I have used both playsand and pool sand before; either one does just fine if you rinse it before adding.

Was just wondering because Kelo's looks more white then what I'm getting here (TN) as play sand which looks lil more beige/ brownish.
