    That looks nice bud Smile

    It's missing bubbles though Wink

    I'm doing the same as you, learing a little with a smaller tank then moving up to a Jewel Rio 300.
    They reckon its easier to learn with a bigger one though as the capacity allows for changes to happen more slowly but the way I see it theres less to kill in a small tank lmao

    Yeh the filter was just on a diff setting! I was told bubbles ain't that necessary anyway unless you are over stocking ur tank! My fluval u2 filter is on setting A now so it agitates and adds bubbles! The tank is in complete darkness again and fish only fed evey 2 days! The tank is cycling and the nitrates and nitrites are high and some amonia n the fish have White spot and my molly is chang g colour! My first week of fish keeping has been eventfull to say the least! A1 will be sick fed up of me by now already haha!

    Ive have changed the tank a bit. I now have my tank fully stocked.

    1 sailfin mollie male
    2 dalmation mollie females
    3 plattys 2F 1M
    3 peppered corys i did have 4 but one died.
    1 Siamese fighting fish.

    i took my ornament out because it was taking up too much room and put in some small plants.
