First off I would like to apologize for the quality of the pictures ( I know not a good way to start off a new post) unfortunately my potato
(cellphone camera) isn't of the best quality but it makes do, anyway here we go. I have had this project brewing for a 2 months when I first bought the aquarium cabinet in around late October, it was a long and fearsome battle with my mom but at last I managed to get "just one more tank
." It took a huge chunk of my pocket money out (reduced to nothing) but at last i had a tank kit, reliable heater (ehiem brand which I heard is good), stand, and some substrate. So a few weeks ago we moved the stand in and leave it there. I go back to it about 1 week ago and what do I find? The floor is uneven!!!! ARGGGHHHH
well thank goodness we have a local Home Depot around, I was able to do this. Hooray for Shims!
Hmm, nope not good enough...
Ok there we go, now sand...
Now These photos show about an inch of sand but theres at least 2-3 inches which I added eventually. Now for just a "little" wood.
Up till this point I was at the 3 hour mark, here's the tank with the lights on.
...and with the room dark and tank lights on.
Heres the soon to be "Cory cave" hopefully...
And some tunnels under the driftwood...
I asked what my mom thought of my project this is what she called it...."depressing"...I originally wanted to make an arch from the driftwood but forgot even with a 29 gallon not a lot of room ,I will admit maybe it is a little depressing but once the water clears up and plants go in I am hoping that changes, anyway hope you enjoyed will update once I get plants in until now not a lot of the Planted in the "nPt" going on but I will just call in my "Natural Tank
". I really want to put some Anubis in that back left corner, I ADORE that plant and also any good low-medium light and maintenance plant suggestions would be cool (I'm clueless). I will probably be ordering some peat moss balls to soften up the tank water as my tap reads 7.6-7.8 after 48 hours bleh
. Anyways hope you enjoyed my "Mount Doom" , toodles.
