So the Divided tank has been redone due to getting the heater & filter.. Got the Marineland Duetto DJ-100 submersible filter & so far I love it. I have it at one end of the tank & some clear tubing taking the water return & returning it to the other end of the tank under the gravel. I have the plants back along with the snails & shrimp. 3 of the 4 fish will be returned to it as soon as the temp stabilizes. The 4th is still in quarantine with an unknown fungal growth.
The next big things to come for it will be lighting which I am going to keep simple. Looking at getting the Coralife Freshwater 30" Aqualight T5 Strip
. I am also hoping to find some black eggcrate which I see on reef forums postings, but haven't been able to locate it here in town. I Dont want to paint white, & black would just plan look better since this tank is out int he open where all of it is highly visible.
