6ft Journal

Thought I'd do a run down on the 6ft as I get it ready for its new tenant that will arrive Saturday

So the 6ft got completely pulled down yesterday and fully cleaned.

Today
I added in the wood décor and part filled it (to keep wood waterlogged).
Currently it is bare bottomed.
I also have started getting the media ready for the overhead sump. I now have a smaller sump pump.
The larger pump is still running in the tank, gives the tank good water movement which the eel will like.
I bought some porthos plant to add to the sump. I also have another plant here to add to it..
Depending what pennies I have left I may get another few plants to add to the sump

Tomorrow
I will be giving the pump a whirl, once I buy some new tubing and connections (others are too big from the larger pump).
I will buy another bag of scoria for the sump.
I need to wash the sand (nightmare stuff it is to wash too!!)
To make the tank escape proof I think I will get some poly channelling to run along the back of the sump. This will eventually end up with DIY LED strip in it

Once everything is running I will buy some feeder gudgeon and some feeder long arm shrimp for the tank. They will have a bit of settle in time before the eel is invited to dinner lol
I also want to add a few large bunches of Val to the tank, just to break up the all wood décor.

Hopefully I can grab a pic tomorrow so you can have a look see
