Just over 5 months old

whats the filter for? how deep is the substrate? the grain size seems large?

and just for the heads up i have never heard of a long term success story with the flame scallops

Yeah I know I just wanted to give the scallop a try. And the filter is for circulation and removal of leftover flake food.
