Well, Sunday was the day. I set it up thanks to everyone's help Here
is a link to a thumbnail gallery of the setup. Plesae excuse that the second pic is altually the last pic. It is labeled pic 10.
The captionsa re not very descriptive so basically what I did was:
-Soak 1 handful of ground peat
-Mix together the Shultz Aquatic Plant Soil and charcoal and wash them
-Added the peat to the boto of the tank the covered with the SAPS/charcoal mix.
-Drained any water so the peat stayed buried and did not float up
-Washed about 5lbs SAPS and covered, carefully, the base mix
-Added almost 1 bag od Eco Complete over this. Should have used the whole bag but oh-well
The tank is set up with 2x15watt No florescent lights, an AC mini and Press CO2 injected into the AC mini.
Hopefully I did it right and there are no problems. I set the tank up Sunday afternoon and this morning the water was a little cloudy, this afternoon the coudyness was gone and the water is practically crystal clear now. Hope it stays that way.
One thing for next time, I won't soak the peat. Most of it ws still floating after 1-2 hours and then youhave to get rid of the watter. It might have been easier to spread and to keep even on the bottom if it were layed on dry then covered. Also, SAPS is not bad looking actually. Kind of like flourite to me. Little red for my tastes but the grain sive is very uniform. If money were and object I would just use straight SAPS, especially for only $5 a bag. Keep this in mind new Iron Aquascaping people
