Senegal Sactuary, with pictures of its progress

Hello all, this thread is going to be for the progression of my new 40 gallon tank. Its dimensions are 36"Lx18"Wx14"H, so it has plenty of room and turning space for the bichirs I plan to get, hopefully they'll be one male and one female. For now, the tank is empty (except for a grey tree root structure I bought at Petsmart, it's a little over a foot tall and was only $21!), and is sitting upon its snazzy black stand in my room. It had the most calcium build up I've ever seen on a tank... but after some diligent cleaning it almost looks new~



Going to buy a the rest of the stuff bit by bit for the next few weeks, filter, heater, and the light bulb, then the sand and plants; I'll be posting pictures as the setup progresses. After the aquarium stabilizes chemically, it'll be time to bring said bichirs to their new home. :D

I've also edited the 'My Aquariums' so that my other aquariums have pictures as well.

Sorry for the realllyyyy big picture, I'll try to size them down from now on. D:

Nice job on cleaning the tank. I'm looking forward to your progress updates.

If I hadn't said it before, welcome to TFK.

No, no I was saying I got the tree root decoration at Petsmart for $21. :P Sorry if my wording made it sound like I meant the aquarium, though I actually traded this tank for an E-Reader that I never used along with the hood and an aquarium pump/siphon.

Small update, I've bought some of the sand, pure black sand, and I found out that Pet Supplies Plus will take special/custom orders for plants and fish, so for now I ordered Anubias and C. cornuta Water Sprite since they didn't have any already.

Knowing that I can order fish they don't usually have makes me want to explore more options for my stock, I'm soooo indecisive.

Yup, even now stock lists keep popping into my head.

Still considering a Bichir or two, as they are a fish I am most attached to, I just love their ancient, awesome appearance!

Also thinking of three separate species of barbs, long-fin rosy barb, green tiger barb, and odessa barb, they are all so pretty! And to have them all in separate schools, showing off their bright colors.. the thought is very appealing to me.

Or, have the aquarium swarming with fancy guppies!

My guppies and Cichlids get along great.... or at least the cichlids are liking the free lunch :P Have you ever considered an eel?
