So I've had my 10 gallon tank set up since November and it's gotten overrun with algea and it was just getting dirty and while my boyfriend and I were in the local pet store we noticed how nice the aquariums there were because they were solid blue so I picked up some brighter lights, 3 bags of dark blue gravel and a background and decided to redo my entire tank.
It took FOREVER! I had to cup my little guys, drain all the water, dump all the gravel into a colander and rinse it and put in in tupperware and leave it out to dry for like a week before I can store it, scrub the entire tank with a toothbrush, rinse it out and then rebuild the entire tank.
Also I think it'll be a lot easier to clean now. I used to have 2 big plants, an ornamental centerpiece, a small plant and 2 marimo balls in each divider. Cleaning was hell. Now I have one big plant, the centerpiece and the marimos. Should that still be enough to keep my boys entertained?
Now I'm just waiting til the water cools off a little since they're used to it being around 78 or so and it's up in the 80's. Just thought I'd share my store with you guys.
