I am adding a new tank to my list of projects - my 75 gallon!
My filters came in yesterday along with my new test kit and I sold my otterbox so I am itching with MTS. After this it will be a tough decision between another tank or an iguana....
I went to Walmart this morning and got the stuff I need to reseal the tank (it's a CL tank and I don't trust the chips in the glass at the seams) and something for my 10 gallon project. Here is everything I have for my 75 so far;
2 Emperor 400s
I think I am going to cycle it barebottom so I may not get the sand this week and get the power strip I need instead. As of right now, the intended inhabitants are goldfish but that could change. (suggestions welcome)
I have to say, stripping the silicone out of an aquarium is not all it's cracked up to be. My thumb and forefinger are raw from holding the razor blade with so much pressure and it's taken me an hour to only strip the corners. I still need to do the bottom seam and figure out how to get the silicone off the top frame so it can be removed. It doesn't help that I'm 6.5 months pregnant, 5'2 and the tank is up to my armpits. lol I may not do anymore today, I'm beat and it's only 10:30am!!
