Hi All, I'm going to be documenting my second attempt to get my tank here. The reason for this is in the topic below. go check it out. http://www.fishforum.co.za/index.php/topic,304.0.html Yesterday I setup a second temp tank with one of my big tanks filters, to try get the bacteria going quickly. Tonight I'm going to test the water and see if its safe to put in some fish. I want to start my re attempt ASAP. I dont want to loose anymore fish. Tomorrow night I'll be putting in the first of the refugees. and hopefully have all the substrate ingredients ready for the tank so that Wednesday night I'll begin with the substrate. Till next time ... banjo EDIT: I'm going to be journalling this process ... so all feed back is welcome. I have posted this same topic on another forum ... so if youve read it before my apologies.
