Fishless (temporary) planted tank question by Cichlidiot
Hi all, If you read my little disaster story last week in alt.aquaria, you would know my 40g display tank is now fishless. I don't want to restock until I move (late Aug/early Sep), but I do have plants in that tank that I'd like to keep healthy until I restock. The plants are Aponogeton bulbs...

Cloudy water after water change by Jody Pellerin

Little Plastic Pots by Ron Nelson
Usually you do want to remove the pots and the wool that the plants are rooted in. And then just plant them right into the substrate. As for the snails - well if you didn't clean the plants in diluted bleach or something like that chances are good you'll end up with snails at some point or at least...

My relandscaped 29gal tank by Graham Broadbridge
I think it looks great, especially compared to the older photos. Only comment would be to lose the stick-on thermometer on the front of the tank and use something a little more discreet. I wish I could find a supplier of that substrate :-) Graham. "Mr Stout" wrote...
