Brook Side Hello everyone! Preparations for a rescape, so would like to have your suggestions on it. Right now i have a hardscape in my mind for which i will be using some DW and Ryuoh stones. Need some help on the following- 1.While preparing the new DW 1st I kept it in water for about 2weeks. Then I boiled it for about 6 hours, changing the tanned water every couple on times for two days. And now have kept it in normal temperature water for about 4-5 days.The DW now has sunk in water, but the water still has slime and water has a yellowish tingh. Would it be problem for the plants or the fish in future? Or shall I wait further. 2. I need height on left and right side, so I have used two inch thermacol and some river stones to achieve the desired height. Is it advisable to use these? Tank size :-48x17x22 inches 1. 2.
