  1. My ever changing never satisfied 40g tank is going through a transition at the moment. I added the Tahitian Moon Sand and am now looking for some slow growing low light plants that my fish won't eat, they like to tug at the plants but so far they stay away from them. I am looking to get some Amazon Swords and Anubias too.


  2. Looks awesome!!! :nana

    I am waiting to get some into my daughter's 40B.... May be a wait though as she wants white sand. :rofl

    Ahh nice I have a smaller tank I wouldn't mind using the White sand in there maybe one day
  3. Very pretty!  How are you liking the TMS?

    The TMS is so nice I love how it sparkles and the feel is so nice. I have to get used to the fish poop standing out but the fan helps to disperse it and push it to the filter intakes. Thanks

  4. :nana  Looks fantastic!  How long after adding the TMS did you take the pic?  It's very clear!  :D

    Thanks, After filling the tank back up and adding the sachet of water clarifier that came with it I put my fish back in about an hour after filling it even though it was still alittle cloudy . I took the picture about 2 hours after luckily I rinsed it. The moment I put them back in as usual they tried to eat a mouthful and quickly spat it out so their still getting used to eating their food and not the substrate.

  5. I agree.  Definitely take them out.  Make sure to rinse the TMS well before adding it to the tank.  I did and it was clear almost immediately.  :D



    Hope you love it as much as I do.  And, of course, we expect pics.  :photo:



    Thanks folks. Can I just ask how big your tanks are and how many bags you needed to get sufficent coverage? I purchased a 20 pound bag, My tank is a 40g dimensions: 15" x 36" (3 feet).

  6. Hi Folks, Okay A friend of mine purchased a Coralife 18watt UV Sterilizer online from the U.S only to plug it in and find out it doesn't work now since he lives in New Zealand he didn't want to send it all the way back to the U.S to have it replaced he offered it to me for free all I have to do is find a way to fix it.

    On closer inspection the bulb has not blown and still in working order but I suspect the Ballast (Power Box) maybe faulty, there are replacement parts available online which are a bit pricey so I'd like to see if i can see if an electritian can fix it which also be pricey. Someone told me to sell it on our local online auction site and state that it is faulty so I can make some money on it. What do you folks think?
