What do you add to the whole to drain the water out of the false bottom? I want to do that, but I need to see it.
It is simple just requires a diamond hole saw, h2o and time. After the hold you add a bulkhead and I will have a ball valve so I can control how much water stays under my false bottom.

Yeah, it was great visiting tropaflora, I am definitely a novice when it comes to plants, and even in the rain the gentleman led me through their selections of neos and even suggested cutting off pups to save me a bunch of money. I am lucky to live so close!

The three awesome leucs I picked up on Monday from Bill Schwinn!

They are in quarantine, now I cannot wait until I get them in the display tank!

The tank looks nice. It's great to see someone new to darts do their research, take their time (fruit flies first & waiting for frogs), and quarantine them too! Great job.
