I don't know HOW you had it in you to tear apart that tank - GAH! It was gorgeous!!!
. . . gorgeous again already, though ^_^ You've done a great job so far!

Definitely with Sandy - that Anubias is swoon-worthy, and I ADORE Manzanita wood - you've got some great pieces in there! The Blue Marble is stunning - how many babies are coming to live with you, and who else is going to be living in there?

Please keep us posted on how this tank develops, definitely off to a good start! I'm excited to watch this one grow. .

There goin to be 8+ angels, due to weather on east coast, shipping has been put on hold. other tank mates are a school of sapphire tetras, a school of black neons, several small types of placos cats, an a breeding school of black koolie loaches. When I took old tank apart I found about 25 koolies, started out with 4. And of course several types of snails.

hi
very nicely done,looks lovely.
subscribing so i get to see how it looks when the fish arrive.

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.
