Pics of my new setup

Hey everyone.

Just finished tarting up my tank after a massive algea bloom and thought i'd share my efforts with everyone at Fush Forum.



I've added bogwood, more plants, a few kilos of sand and spent my hard earned cash on some equipment.
More specifically a Fluval 205 external filter, a UV sterilizer and a Tetra CO2 dispenser. I also converted all of the tubing and intake/outake on the Fluval filter to Eheim (so much more straight forward to use)

Don't your fish just suck your wallet you dry?

i know what u mean. i swear everytime we get some extra cash we're like "hm...what fish tank should we pour this into?" your tank looks nice, very clean.

The UV steriliser worked a treat.

The algea bloom was massive, couldn't see the back of the tank but within a week of installing the UV the water was crystal clear, would highly recommend one.

The tank itself is a Fluval Uno 60, so is 63 litres (i think thats about 16 US gallons, but don't qutoe me).
