So, I'm going bare bottom (my tank) soon and looking for ideas to make my tank interesting, not baron or sterile looking. I'd really appreciate it if any Kokonuts would post pics of their setup and talk about it Thanks in advance
Hello KoKos Members! How is everyone? I am doing fine myself. Any who, I wan't to have a tank that is bare bottom and have substrate, what do you guys and girls think of this idea? How would I go about and do this? Any suggestions? Thank you! If you are curious to why I want to do this, this is because I feel my filter isn't picking up everything, and keeping up with the gravel is really annoying me! That is why if you are interested to wonder.
I just had to put this here. It won't necessarily not be a planted tank, but i will be limiting what kind of plants I can get. I want to go barebottom, I just love how clean it looks. My question is how do I go about getting the sand I have in my 55 out? I can get gravel no problem, as my net has wide enough mesh to separate them, but I also don't have a good way to get my sand out. What has worked for some people? Also, I hate the oak trim on my 55, would there be any harm in painting it black? All fish have been moved to QT tanks to get them treated with prazi (some never have had a prazi treatment) so I have some time to redecorate (: How long should I give my tank afterwards to regrow the lost BB on the gravel and sand? Should I add some colony or tetra safe start to help out after removing the substrate? I plan on getting potted plants, like sword and anubias, maybe some ludwigia (:
