    Hello Everyone!

    Someone on another forum suggested that I register here. Well so here goes, got my new tank on Sunday
    Filled the tank on Monday night.... I also went with proper substrate. ( Seachem Flouride Black & Red, and ADA AquaSoil)
    I must say the Seachem Red makes the water "muddy". I washed the substrate for over 30 min but it still the water was dirty.

    I'll get some Seachem Clarity tomorrow, hopefully this will clear the water.
    I'm also waiting for my drift wood to soak through before I put it in the tank and then I'll fill with plants.
    I had a suggestion to use HC as a carpet but don't know where to get some...

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    If I can figure out how to upload pics it would help.... I've got a photobucket account... But all i seem to beable to do is post the URL.

    I did that, but in the "preview" it still only shows the URL and not the actual image.
    Is that correct?

    I can't see the pics, but I think that is because I can't access photobucket. Maybe others can see the pics. In the preview it only shows the URL if I'm not mistaken. So no problem there.
