New set up I really like!!







It's still a bit yellow and cloudy from the peat I had in the filter and the Flora Base but that should clear up in a day or two. My cories are already out and exploring, they like all the caves in the rocks the most so far!! I'll get a good shot tonight once the sun goes down. Next step....Apisto's!!!!!!

Oh, my kH came up since I took the Flourite out last night and my gH has gone down a bit also already. I really think it was caused by the Flourite. Over all I didn't like that stuff at all. Even though Eco Complete, Volcanic or Flora Base is a bit more I really think it's worth the money. Speaking of I have 2 extra bags of substrate left..I think that calls for another tank!!

I got them from a web site. They come in a set of 5 and are actually ceramic with a hole in the front that's small and then there's a hole in the back that's a bit bigger. I reallyl ike them so far. Here's the link http://www.cichlidbreeding.com/products.php?cat=8 The have caves and tunnels. That's the new home for my apisto, dwarf cichlids, once I recoup from putting 80 lbs of Volcanic and Flora Base in the tank! That was a pretty penny but I love the look. I'm going to post some more pics when I get home tonight since it's really cleared up nicely.
