Haha - super! They're great little tanks!
Blooming heavy though - but at least they are well built...
I once slammed my hand in the lid - by heck, it hurt my fingers, but no damage to the tank!
(I was removing the old UG system - put everyone into the emergency tank and emtied the whole thing out to do it. Kept all the gravel and ornaments soaked in as much tankwater as I could save of course...)

The PF2 filter means I can keep the amount of fish we've got quite safely, that and most of them are quite tidy.

I have to agree, I am very impressed so far... pictures will be posted some time when the water clears up lol. I might go for the jungle look though so I can keep a few more of the Killie as planned (break up the line of view) Cabomba, Elodea, Vallis and Cryptocoryne Wendtii should do the trick :lol:

Did yours come with the UG filter as standard?

Lol - most of the plants I can't keep in my tank...
They'll thrive in there, the lighting is fairly good on these I gather...

No, the UG I bought later to try out - I was told it was a good thing - but later found out that particular retailer wasn't too good at fishkeeping.
They are a pain to get out...

Sure are a pain to get out, especially when there is suddenly a huge cloud of c**p from the gravel etc.

I would say the lighting is pretty good yes, lets just say I have seen worse anyway, the plants seem to be doing OK at the minute though so it must be fine :lol:

I will split this and put this bit about the tank into the Equpiment section, don't want to clog up the picture thread too much :P

Huge cloud - that's under-estimating it a bit... My water went Yicccc coloured... I have a picture of how nasty it was at home - will upload it tonight.
(I'll tag it onto the end of this post)
It was like mud!

my 15g was exactly the same at the weekend when I re-did it, I still have some floaty bits now that I need to get rid of.

The new Killie tank is definatly clearing though, at least I can see more than 2" into the tank :lol: I can actually see the back now

I have to get Dark to clean our tank - I swear he must of accidently poured half the tub of food in... *sighs*

Ah well - could be worse, they haven't pigged themselves silly, and the filter is doing a good job...
