90-gallon planted tank

I'm excited! I just picked up my new aquarium stand today.



It's still on the cardboard so that I can scoot it to its final resting place ... after I move the guppy tank out of the way...





That's my cat. lol...

The "tank spot" is a rectangular alcove with a southwest window. It gets full, direct sunlight on most days, from mid-morning to late afternoon.

I will be getting one part at a time over the next few weeks or months ...
- Some sort of canister filter, maybe eheim pro II
- Inline heater
- Pressurized CO2 (hopefully also inline to have the filter chop up the bubbles, with all equipment inside the stand, if I can figure that out)
- Eco-complete
- I have no idea yet how much supplemental lighting I will be using. The 15-gallon is growing awesome plants in this spot with just sunlight, and I like that simplicity. But for the 90-gallon it will depend on how much sunlight reaches the front of the tank, and what I want to put where. Even if sunlight is enough by itself I might also want some moonlight LEDs to view the tank after sunset. We will see.

Either that is one huge cat or the 90g isn't in the window yet.
