dan12boy Posted May 14, 2022 Share Posted May 14, 2022 Hey everyone. My girlfriend got me a 75 gallon tank last Christmas and I just started to set it up. This is it empty with the stand. It’s in the basement so a lot of junk beside it. My 20 gallon tall is beside it on the floor. This is it after I added some sand. I encountered a dilemma. I bought some blasting sand but the wrong grain size. The closest store is 40 mins away so had to go return the sand for the right size. I’d already opened one so decided to not take it. Got there and they only had one bag. So that one bag is what’s in there currently. Now I’ve put in the fluval 407 I got yesterday. So far it’s going good. Right now I need to get the right size eheim heaters, more sand and also learn how to reduce the flow of the 407. Any help on that will be appreciated! This is it with just some hornwort I grabbed from my 20 long thats filled with hornwort. I also have some dwarf sag in there I think. Didn’t mean to grab that but decided to just let it in the substrate. I put some root tabs in thinking I’d be planting some plants but won’t be planting any till I get more sand. Will the nutrients from the root tab dissipate or not? Also will my water get clearer without the carbon? Because I removed those. It’s just been about 10 minutes with the filter on though so I’ll give it time. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
