    Default i knew this was gonna happen

    im tearing down my african tank and going neotropical. as my wife says "they just arent as friendly". figured id put the jd as well as prolly one of the cons in it and maybe get ol jackie a husband. <blue jd >

    now my question is when tearing down the african tank do i get ridof all the gravel but leave the filter media and everything else? or do i chagne it and just start new ?

    I think you could keep anything that won't raise the ph of the water. ie - coral, holey rock etc...

    i dont have a camera /cry

    o and i kept all the filter media and changed the gravel so the ph should be lower for them
    tank is still a lil cloudy but it should clear up in a day or so. also do u think i will get a cycle? or will i just get a little spike?
