135 Gallon

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 :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

happy cleaning,although i am insainly jealous of youre new monster tank i
dont evvy the cleaning of it.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

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)

You know I'm envious! (not envious about all the sand you are going to have to wash, though )

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

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.
