...and so i woke up at 1230 am,
had to wait till half an hour till my senses kicks in.

Started to make the temporary tank for my EsAyEe,
bought a cheap filter just for them.
THe plastic jar? 1 ringgit :D

2am EsAyEe transfered, so does the shrimp,
kinda felt it'll be over stock cause of the temp tank size...
but they have to bear with me for 10 days...

Siphon out all the original gravel, found out that this is
better then having to bring your fragile tank to a water
source and hose down all the gravel.
But What if the water level got too low for u to siphon it out?
Just add water laaahhh!!

Tank is cleaned, back film already installed.
Found out that it is not as i imagined it to be.
The film is not as soft as how i thought it should be,
Tips 1)
Cut the whole thing first, u'll end up with
improper cutting on the edge.
Tips 2) as everybody knows it already...
soap water on glass surface, apply,
credit card to remove bubble.

Partition for the type of gravel.
As i am using white sand and my old gravel,
I have to put some partition to make sure they dont mix.
Tips 1) best to use a soft carton box same material like
the tissue box. For better shape and control.
Tips 2) Good tape that dont stick its residue on the glass surface.
Tips 3) when buying stone, consider stones to guide
this partition too, u can put them to produce the contour u need.

every pot of the grass was devided into two,
so does HC. am planting them deep!
as i was told the tend to float a bit.

the slow part. trickling the water into the tank,
a bucket on a stool and the air line tube to flow the water in.
This was too slow!! Too slow... adehlaaa...
but the efect was nice.
Water was not cloudy,
my scape stays intact,
by the time the water level is half the tank height,
u can start to use cups to pour the water in.
With much caution though!
cause u dont want the pouring height produce
a force that will ruin your scape.
Tips 1) You'll find the surface Aquasoil amazonia II
did float by this method.
U just have to touch the floating grains and they'll sink right in.

Go to work!! adehlaaaaaa...
