Yeah, the danger is taking your credit card to shop for tanks/equipment, Ugh!

Welcome!

Its worth the trip!. I'm hoping to get in there in the next week or two and snap a picture of that really neat tank. It's worth sharing with fellow enthusiasts. :)

By the way is that a picture of your tank? Discus?

Discus

Yes, I LOVE discus! I've had multiple tanks since I was 12 (I'm in my 50's now!) and just set up a new tank a few months ago.

I am from Hendersonville, TN, but I am currently living in Asia. I travel a lot, so I haven't had a tank for about nine years (it's been killing me!) and took the plunge not long ago; just couldn't stand not having a tank any longer. The prices for fish and most equipment out here are relatively cheap, so I'm able to do what I want with the tank.

I have five discus that are doing well. They're still youngsters, so they spar at feeding time, but are mellowing out more and more.

Tanks that big you need to have custom made. Glasscages can do it, you might also be able to find something on craigslist.

re: sumps, I never got into the whole "sump" thing. Sometimes I think sumps are for DIYers with too much extra time on their hands. I will stick to regular old filters and for larger tanks multiple filters, although I'm hearing good things about sponge filters.

I am on craigslist looking for fish for sale or free and i just came accross a 375 gallon fish tank for sale

Here is what it said

"I got a big fish tank that I am no longer needed sitting in my garage. Everything is brand new. The items have never been used or opened. The dimension of the tank is 8'x2.5'x2.5' with the overflow box mounted at the center back of the tank. Asking for 5,000 including the tank plus black canopy and the matching color stand. The fish tank itself is approximately 700 lbs, and stand plus canopy is approximately 400 lbs. This fish tank is very big and required a lot of man power to transport. Freight and carrier are included if you pay $4,700 for everything. If you want to take them home youself without any freight or carrier service, then the prices are $4,000 for everything. Good ideal for a display tank in the office or restaurant. If you are interested or have questions, please feel free to call Thanks for looking."



it has pictures to and wow never been opened? who would buy a tank and never open it up?

Ideallly, I would like something more like this


Or better, a U Shaped tank that takes up 3 full walls of the bedroom That way you could feel you were sleeping under water. Add a few whale sounds or waves to the surround sound and you have a very peaceful rest.
Ya I think I would be too afraid to even step into that room let alone close my eyes in it. I may love aquariums but I have a crippling fear of the glass breaking, especially the huge ones like at the zoo.

I really like the sponge filter too. Does a great job in my tanks.
