This tank was completely takin apart, all gravel was washed, tank was scrubed, an started from scratch. Sounds harder than it was, just took time, an love. Hardest part was finding 2 young people to move the tank outside to scrub it an move it back. Did I say up and down 2 flight of stairs..It was worth it.. love my tanks.

Playin with camera..

Nothing on TV, learning my new camera.
Can't get a good shot of the white snail, have to wait till it get up in the front of the tank, it's only 1/2 inch wide.
Tank is about 4 weeks old now.

Placos never touch it. Try feeding your placos slices of zucchini, I slice'm bout 1/4 in thick with skin on, rubber band to a shot glass. In this tank, I do this once a week an there are 4 slices. Also, if ya have a snail problem, in the morning take zucchini out an pick snail off an return to tank..Great snail control, with no chemicals..
