Fixed the tank! *PIC*

After much work remodelling the 30 breeder that used to house our kuhlis, I discovered a seam weeping. So I stripped the whole thing down, cleaned it, stripped out the old silicone and redid it.

After 24 hours, I put it all back together again. The wide floorprint of the breeder tank certainly gives good depth to the scene. Lots of bogwood and driftwood. I used one branch to tier the gravel at the rear. Tank is filtered by a cycled Aquaclear 150 and a Penguin 110, plus there's a MiniJet 404 giving some sideways current across the back. I filled it with aged water from another tank. Still a bit cloudy at present because there is Latterite in the gravel/sand mixture.
