Endless Task

Adding additional substrate to 20g ofter realizing I didn't have enough to plant in.

Lessons we have learned from this experience:

  1. Do not use Pavestone Brand Sand in the aquaria.
  2. Wash all substrates before putting them in the water.
  3. Test all substrates in a jar BEFORE putting them in aquaria.
  4. Do not leave an open bag of sand on the floor when you have dog that likes to eat...well everything.
  5. Drain tank to less then four inches before adding substrate.
  6. Do not add 30 guppies to the tank with the idea of culling them later, only the ones you want to keep will want to be caught.
I'm sure there is more, but those are the ones that are sticking out in my mind. I have completely changed the water more then three times, and now it looks about like the picture of it with the plate still in it a couple of posts ago.
