thank you, Pewpewpew. ive tried the test base and it seems to hold pretty solid if i lift it up gently without a t section on the bottom. i'll use a t section for extra support for the plant i'll make. it takes 1 or 2 days for AQ sealant to dry? the tube says nothing on drying time.
how easy is it to clean the gravel if the plants are rooted in? i dont have any sort of gravel vac. i would like burying some of the anacharis but the gravel cleaning has stopped me so far. its more like i dont know how much gravel movement to clean it is too much.
how smooth must an ornamental cave be to be betta safe? im going to the other LPS today to see they're stock. the jaquar face atm seems like it'll scratch the fish's scales in my newb opinion.
