Hey, I came back with my fish club in receiving some fish tanks from a man that passed away and I took one of his 10 gallon tanks. I noticed that this 10 gallon and a few of the other aquariums have blue painted on the bottom. What is the purpose of this? I'd rather have a plain bottom.

Possibly they where used as egg/fry tanks and so they never had any substrate.

I plan not to use substrate too as one of my other 10 gallons has none. Is it for security? I would like to remove it.

I would imagine it was as people havesaid to make it less scary for the fish

I like blue paint on tanks, never thought about the bottome but I woyuld imagine it looks better than a plain bottom

Use nitromorz to get shut of it
