    Scrapping tank. Starting over. Need best advice

    Thats Iti's tank, he doesn't have any aftermarket substrate or dirt, just pea gravel. Using those substrates can cause spikes. He doesn't use lights but has put his tank beside a window to get natural sun (this can cause its own problems.) He doesn't use CO2 Hes got a under gravel filter...

    Ok I'll give it a go. This is my new Juwel 240 ltr tank that has replaced my old 200ltr tall one (this one gives me an extra 40cm in width which is great.) I have painted the back black and removed the internal filter. It has been setup for about 2 months now i guess with most things being...
