Talking And so it begins

Finnaly got the stand finished to the point it can be setup. Moved it into location, and got the aquarium itself moved into place. I have it slightly filled up to the plastic frame for leveling.

Only thing left is to finish the oak doors (they can be added at any time) and to get shims to level the stand before filling 100%. I should be finished by this weekend and then comes the fun part of buying fish and plants to fill this think up!

It's been a multi-month long project building the stand and getting the room recarpeted but the end is in sight! Or is it the beginning

Edit: Forgot to say, this is a 6 foot 125 gallon aquarium.

Aquascape plans got destroyed, so I'm not entirely sure. I was going to try to put in terraces and make the impression of a river running through a pair of them, and a piece of driftwood bridging the gap like a natural land bridge.

But... the terrace idea didn't work out. So I'm back at the drawing board. I have lots of Malaysian Driftwood, with a couple of larger pieces, that will be going in for sure.

For fish:

6x Angelfish
10x Marble Hatchetfish
10x Diamond Tetra
10x Harlequin Rasbora
6x Julii Cory
6x Schwartz Cory
1x Whiptail Catfish
6x Otocinclus
2x Bristlenose Pleco

For plants, this is still up in the air:

Anubias coffefolia
Anubias Congensis
Anubias hastifolia
Chilensis
Pygmy Chain Sword
Cryptocoryne undulata
Java Fern
Melon Sword
Radican Sword
Spiralis
Echinodorus martii
Water Sprite
Cryptocoryne crispatula

200 Corys would be way too many...

This will be my first use of a canister filter. It has a spray bar, should I have it along the back or along the side? And pointed horizontal, angled down, or straight down? I won't have it angled upwards because I don't want surface disturbance.
