Well I am setting up my 1st tank. Its 125 gallons. I am making my own stand. Will be using some sort of canister. Maybe making my own one. I am so greatfull for all the info on the site. I plan on making my own background too. I am getting out of the military soon and needed a hobby. Here are a few pics of stand in progress and the tank.
First thank you for your service for our freedom. Second your stand looks nice very sturdy. What kind of fish are you thinking about putting in there? Are you doing real plants? Looking forward to seeing more pictures.
<P>Yes I am going to put live plants in it. I belive its going to be a fresh water tank. Still looking at fish. I love Angel fish but do not want problems. There is so much info on the web sometimes its overwheleming. </P>
LOL I know how you feel. Have you noticed our fish profile tab at the top of the page? Byron and others have worked very hard to make sure the onfo there is correct. I have used it on several occasions when I am looking for new fish and find one I like on aquabid or at the LFS to make sure they will work with my water and any other fish I have or may want to have in the same tank with them. Also there is a very helpful set of posts here that go over haveing a planted tank there are four of them and they helped me tons when I went from fake to real plants. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/aquarium-plants/
