Recommended Posts

So Jake wanted the bare geo grow out tank to be "more comfortable" and "aesthetically pleasing" for the fish. Guess who had to wash the sand? :confused:

i guess you didnt see the coke bottle gravel cleaner post then

Yep. I've seen all sorts both in the past and in the present..........coke bottles............cement mixers.............riddles and hoses..........all sorts. Nothing beats swilling and pouring from a bucket IMHO..............labour intensive but you can see the clarity of the water before the substrata goes in the tank..................I'm a better safe than sorry kinda bloke................with gnarled fingers and a knackered back :egrin:

It's one big piece of driftwood with swimholes in it so they can get to the back if they're feeling shy.

"tis true mate. To quote my lad, "just because they're breeding and grow out tanks it doesn't mean to say that we can't make the fish comfortable" :confused: All but 3 of the bloody tanks have substrata/plants/timber in 'em. He even throws a thrombie when I put plant pots in, 'cause he says they ain't natural :egrin:
