Tank Shot

Airator was moved because i needed the hose for the nitrate filter. Its there only tempraraily.



Upgraded to FX6 and recently added a Deltec NFP509 nitrate filter. Started feeding from and to the tank yesterday.



Lupin



Severus



I think im going to take the gravel out and scrub it until it looses its colour. Im bored of the blue its white underneath.

Nice looking tank, I love the markings on the Sev. Is the T junction steel?

Thanks for all the help guys; I love my fish!


I never got those pics and the gf is now the wife. Coming up to our 1st year anniversary.

Yep its steel but the paint is powdercoat rated for constant full submersion for over 15 years I think.

Fish and tank look great. How long would you have to scrub the gravel to get it white?! White pool filter sand is cheap and a lot easier I'm sure.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Blue flakes come off when I do a gravel vac. If you look at the difference in the pictures earlier in the thread you might notice the gravel seems alot lighter since then. Im sure If I left it long enough it would end up white by its own accord. So it shouldnt be to difficult to get all the colour off.

Sand im not so keen on. Ive read a number of people regret going to sand and the people that move from sand to gravel question why they didnt do it sooner.

On top of this I get quite alot of suction when doing a gravel vac. I expect if I was to go with sand alot of it would get sucked up and end up down the drain.
