It's okay, at least there were no fish that got hurt. It kinda look's like my 10g when I left the light on for 2 week's, which resulted in algae and a very very bad smell.

I've got my newly introduced jack dempsey in there, I still havnt been home to check on him today so I'm hoping everythings OK
and yea yesterday was actually the first time I cleaned the glass since the set up, I was wanting to grow plenty of food for a school of ten otos I was going to get, but when I switched the stocking plans there was no need for the extra algae.

So what exactly happened? Like was the filter turning the sand around? and what was the mold? like was it because or on the barriers or did it just so happen that is where it grew?

well like I said I had to take the barriers out, and when taking them out it pulled up a lot of flourite into/onto the sand bed. so I decided the best thing to do is siphon out the unmixed sand before it got all mixed in. so now I'm going to just cover up where the sand was and just have an all flourite substrate.

well I couldnt get an ID on it but it was growing in four spots but all right on top of the barrier.

okay thanks.

no problem.

So for now I've got to figure out exactly what I want the stocking, also I have to decide what I want to do for a background(any ideas welcome!) , and I am going to be redoing the tank for the most part, more drift wood, caves,etc..

Will update with pics as often as possible

Hey Brandon, do you have a general idea as to what you want to stock?Scroll through the gallery tab and/or make a post in a thread to get a final stock ironed out.

As for the background, I lamenated a black piece of construction paper and cut it to size. It looks great, and is cheap as well.

I as well use a black background. only because it makes the tank look deeper and the picture ones take away from all the hard work you put into it. and like Maestro

Scroll through the gallery tab and/or make a post in a thread to get a final stock ironed out.

Just make sure you take a look in the gallery before you start a new thread because you will be asked to do this by some people. But it is not a requirement. It just helps all of us to see what kind of for you would like and correct any errors.

Maestro: This is a 120 gallon just so you know... not a 90 gallon.

Thanks for the background idea that would look good.

As far as the stock goes I have already been through nearly every fish and plant profile here at age of aquariums and have found them all help full!

I have narrowed my stocking choices down a lot and what I am trying to do now is cut it down some so I am not overstocking the tank.
My planned stock as of now.
1 Jack Dempsey
1 Albino tiger oscar
1 super red severum
1 GT
1 medium sized pleco
Almost certain this will be my stocking but I might omit one to lessen the bioload.
