    Of course I remember...lol......you have to be careful moving things and pulling plants in a newly set-up soil based tank-it may be safer for the livestock to remove them if you chose to do that-you can have dead spot (anaerobic) under rocks, disruption of roots and soil can foul the tank-moving the filter to the other side should be fine-once the soil has matured and started it submersed life it can be a bit safer to make big changes- at this stage I would only make small changes and be really careful when you do and always plan a big water only change when you do it. Good luck.....

    What fin type is he and what is your pH/KH/GH readings
    I wouldn't do 100% water changes in a filtered tank-not needed-twice weekly 50% should be enough to maintain water quality
    When you use oak leaf they need to be removed and replaced once a week
    Are you sure he is not tail biting-make a new thread and post a pic on the main board/forum

    Hey Oldfishlady! I just need some advice. Ares' rays are still melting. It's been pretty bad recently. I think sooner or later, all his fins will be melted. I do daily 20% water changes and a 100% every week. He's in a filtered 2.5 gallon. I've already tried oak leaves, but it gets moldy and doesn't seem to work. I have aquarium salt, too, but I'm not using it. Thanks!

    I PM'd you some pics......
    I don't use just sand only about 1 inch on top of the soil to hold it down-I don't use or need root tabs-but with just sand I would use root tabs. I get my sand at walmart for $4/50# play sand for kids sand box.
