    Hi Guys
    Killed off the Salt water side of the tank, its been empty and idle for months now.
    Washed the Jebo and am looking for all the parts to start it as it should have been..
    Fresh water. LOL! Going to try focus on lots of plants and just a few Tetras..
    So.. I hope to use the drip tray and plants to do the filtration.. :D

    ps. Any youngster in PE want a sump and Skimmer for free?
    So.. Wat se julle?
    Tom..

    And then bought some red plants this weekend for color.

    The one set of plants lost a lot of leaves so I re planted them in a jar with potting soil in the water. and then when they recovered, I cut some tips and put them back in the tank..

    Really enjoying all this gardening stuff.
