Equipment Deliveries

Posted 11/06/2011 at 01:23 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

While all that was happening a few goodies arrived:

[B]2 x Vortech mp40 pumps[/B]
I really like the mp10 I have on my nano, so I figured this tank deserved 2 mp40s.

[B]2 x EHEIM Jager Aquarium Thermostat Heater 200W[/B]
I read that having 2 heaters that can heat half the tank volume each is better (safer!) than having one that can do everything. So I bought 2 of these...

Woo Hoo! A blurry mess!

So, off to the airport again for the live-sand, shipped straight from the seabed, since they didn't have any in stock last week. Monday gathering and shipment for a Tuesday delivery. Not bad.

Of course, adding the sand to a running tank was ... a mess, and the inevitable sandstorm makes a mockery of the crystal-clear water we could see before, so now it looks like:

Aquascaping: Part 2

Posted 10/30/2011 at 02:57 PM by Aaarrrggg (Aaarrrggg's 144g Half Circle Dream)

I'd read about using rods, or "pegging" for aquascapes, but never actually braved it before. I ordered a 10lb bucket of [URL="http://www.marcorocks.com/bondingmortar.aspx"]E-Marco-400 aquascaping mortar[/URL] and picked up some yellow fiberglass "driveway markers" from Lowes (as recommended by numerous [URL="http://www.tcmas.org/article_aquascaping_part2.php"]aquascaping guides[/URL].)

My (wonderful!) husband then got to work drilling holes...
