Gotcha, gonna get my moss ball in quarantine now.
I already have a place picked out for it in the tank, although I'll probably move it every time I rinse it out hahaha.
Silly me, I forgot to put the seeded gravel into the tank. But I'm too tired to mess with it right now (it's 11pm where I am), so I'll do it in the morning. At least the filter is all-but silent. I certainly need the sleep after the day I had. x_x
Thanks for the compliments, guys!! I'm pretty pleased with it, even if it was a lot of work. The driftwood is still leeching tannins, so my water is currently a light tea-color, which I rather like. ^_^ Looking forward to getting this thing cycled and stocked! I am probably going to start actively looking for girls either next week or the week after so I can quarantine them for 2 weeks and have them ready to go when the tank is. So excited!
