Restart of my 7.5ft

Post by stanchung » 29 Jan 2008, 19:40

As per limb maiming threats from the mafia here, this is what I've done for my 7.5 ft tank. :garv: This would not be planted so I'd only be using sand, rock and wood.

Firstly, some of the materials.

10 bags of 1-2mm Shirui gravel. 40kg total. This is still insufficient. Need another 6 bags I think. :mad:
They can't be too fine as I'm using a tube undergravel system.

River Rocks. They're not very hard, can be broken into smaller pieces.

I will be using a top filter box[5 liter]+powerhead and also an undergravel tube system + small powerhead for the filtration.

Using a rock to keep it the tubing from floating.

To be continued...
