Adventures in 225g's

We are soon going to start the beginning phase of the 240g ! Finally
I'm going to be painting the wood like trim either black or deep brown and the stand as well . That should be fun .. *hands paint to Jaysee *
So here it is .. Haven't even moved it out of the previous owners house lol. But he's really nice and doesn't mind. In fact offered to assist moving it ! He just wants to drool over my fish .. ( he will be here on TFK soon to share his amazing array of previous fish !)

So here's out new tank.. I might have to dive in to do the planting in this beast .. Hopefully I still have my snorkeling goggles lol

Will put all the fish from the 75 in there for now till Josh moves and the tank merging madness begins .
I want 10x turnover rate so umm.. Thank god we both have lots of filters . I know I'll put my XP 4 on this tank.. Perhaps one of my AC 110s for a bit then eventually a few other canisters .. Oh and that XP in the picture as well.. It's a bit small though. I'll get maybe another SunSun 304 or 2 of them.

Here are some of the fish going in at first . Then we need to brainstorm the final stocking .. Many ideas bouncing around

Of course Baybay my ornate bichir who thinks he's an itty bitty pleco . After much practice he's learned how to sit on the glass like his clown pleco BFF haha

The new tiger pleco

And of course my daughter wouldn't allow me to do much of anything when she set up the QT for the tiger pleco . She really did everything except turn the faucet on to fill it.. Because she couldn't reach . Mini slaves are great!!ImageUploadedByPetGuide1394390528.408999.jpg
Plants !! I'll be moving these over when I finally get the tank set up .

Pretty sure I'll have to use media from every single filter in this house to properly seed this tank lol

240 gallons

I'm wiping up the drool from my keyboard as I type. That is going to be amazing! So how many total tanks are you two going to end up with after the merge?

I can't even say how many tanks .. But I feel like last time I added it up it was 900ish gallons . You guys just wait till we move to a bigger place !! Whatever you think we will do .. I bet it will be more. We are very supportive of each other's "habits" haha
Oh the gallon estimate doesn't include my dragon tanks . Only the aquatic ones and not the QT tanks either

Jaysee13's 240g and other tank madness of MTS x 2

With the python and pump it's really not bad . Just means 2 glasses of wine not one while I wait lol. I change water 50-80% every 1-2 weeks except in the late summer when I'm vacationing .

Anything over 50g I'd on that schedule and the little tanks when I get around to it. Honestly my nano tank and my gudgeons grow out tank are more a pain then the largest tank.. Little fish and have to sit with the tank while they drain.
I already have my daughter doing the dragon feedings mostly their baths feeding and walking the dog too . I'm aiming towards both kids learning to do water changes within a yr. I'm much more anal about water changes then Jaysee hahaa .. I like sparkling perfect water. He can cook to make up for me doing the tank maintenance
I'll not let the kids do the African tank though.. Gotta play chemist with that one .

I'm only bringing the 125s and the 90, so that's 340 gallons right there.

340+ 240+16+55+72+6+5+4= 738g or 758 if we include the running QT.
I guess at first I forgot I'll be getting rid if my 46 bowfront and saving the 75 fir when my tiny dwarf frilled dragon goes in grows more ...

We would be closer to 1000 if we included the 100 gallons of quarantine tanks I have.
