Some of you know of my unfortunate incident from the other day. My fish got sucked up into the filter.
I promised pictures, so here they are. Please bare with me, I am not a photographer by any means.
Glass is dirty, water is cloudy. I put in the salt, buffer, African Cichlid gravel. I think this picture is with only 1 T-5 strip light with a blue and white light. I added another one. Which makes.......2 strips with 4 lights total. 2 blue and 2 white.
I was trying different things with the lace rock. Right side.
Left side of the 1st round of lace rock.
Fish in tank.
Whole picture of tank. Water is still cloudy. At this point I began adding some Hagen Nutrafin cycle. I should of started a few days before hand, BUT....I didnt.
Tank looks green here, In person it is perfectly clear.
Side picture of the tank.
Kind of a side angle, I wanted to show more of the caves.
Thats about it. All fish are about 2". Except the big ones. They are close to 4". I am still doing fish recognition. All of these fish were practically given to me. A heck of a deal.
I started with 20, 9 died.http://www.fishforum.com/freshwater-...ng-post-22066/
I got 12-15 more today. So that makes ~30 or so. I cant count, they move to fast.
75 gallon Oceanic
70 lbs of African Cichild gravel
40 lbs of Lace rock - I am going to add 60-100 lbs more once the LFS gets some more.
Cascade 1500 filter with a Pura Complete pack.(A large wet/dry is on standby, incase I need it.)
300 watt heater
2 T-5 strips with actinic and white lights
A bubbler manifold, with black hose running to 3 seperate bubblers. Manifold has gate valve to gate back bubbles if I want to.
PH - 8.2
Ammonia - 0
Nitrates - 0
Thats about it.
