Yay! I finally got the monster into the house. I'm excited to get it going. I have tomorrow off so I'll be cleaning sand. Here's a pic of it when I brought it home.

Wish I had one that size to set up! . Which room are you putting it in and what are you going to stock it with?

I look forward to your progress pictures. Happy cleaning :(

Thanks guys. This will be going into the living room. Stock will be mostly Central American cichlids. They're all young, around the 2" size. I'll also be moving Hershey, my albino Chocolate pleco, to this tank as well as the Congo tetra. I will be swapping out a biowheel and some filter floss from one of my established tanks as well as some wood to help the cycle.

Managuense (Jaguar cichlid)



Vieja Synspillum (I call him Punk because he is)


Jack Dempsey


Polleni (A cichlid from Madagascar)

LOL. Whew! I just spent 3 hours cleaning sand. Yeah, that is the hardest part of setting up a tank I think. Well, maybe besides cleaning the tank itself, which I actually have already done over the past couple weeks. It's been scrubbed with vinegar/water and rinsed more times than I can remember. Also got the rocks and wood scrubbed and rinsed.
