I've already posted a few post about this. But they where all question related. This will be the post I update with pictures of changes and what not.
This is a 125G All Glass Aquarium.
The stand is by all glass as well. The stand was oak flavored, but has been re-stained to a cherry finish.
It's current inhabitants are:
2 Bala Sharks
2 Blue Gourami
10 Serpea Tetra
1 Chinese Algae Eater
1 Mystery Snail
? Ghost Shrimp
There is 100 Watts of lighting.
2 300Watt Heaters.
Filtration is a Fluval FX5.
I bought 72 pounds of slate rock from a local hardware store. I did the vinegar test and barely got any bubbles. I have boiled all the slate for at least 10 minutes. (More like nearly boil my stove didn't get quite hot enough to make such a big pot boil)
I plan to get more rock. To support all of this rock I have egg crate 4 feet wide and 1 foot deep on the left side of my tank.
The tree root was bought at my local fish store. It came fish tank ready. I had to cut off some of the long leads to make it fit in the tank.
I have a piece of drift wood I found. It has been in a fish tank before but may have been the cause of some guppies dieing. Consider only two guppies died while it was in there... and the other 8 died in a totally different tank I doubt it was this piece of woods fault. I was able to boil most of the wood. Only about 5 inches in the middle escaped being boiled. For now I have the wood being held down with large rocks in my old 55 gallon tank with 10 gold fish. If the gold fish make it, it will probably become a fixture in this tank.
This tanks inhabitants are temporary. I will be taking all of them to the pet store eventually. I plan to make this tank an African Cichlid Tank.
