[APD] Question for Tom
Thanks for your answer...since this tank is going to
be an upgrade from my 29 gallon, I was planning on
vacuuming the old gravel and dumping all the sludge
into the new tank and letting it run for a few days to
clear any murk. Then, I would taking the old water
and the old filter and move them over with the fish
(only about 15 guppies and 1 SAE).
I'll add the peat or soil now that you've alerted me
to that. Is it just the type I should get at a
nursery? Not potting soil that comes in bags, right?
What does this do?
Remember to add mulm from an established FW tank and
some peat(or some soil), about 2 handfuls is all
you'll need, add as much mulm as will
fill the bottom of the tank with a nice soupy layer.
Rinse the flourite 2-3x, do not try and clean it all
Add the mulm
Add the peat
Add the flourite
That's about all you need to do from here on with your
substrate. For a non CO2 tank, add roughly 1" of soil
or peat, same other wise.
