New Tank DIY Hood and Stand Build
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys, new to the forum, from Down Under in Perth West Australia.:-D
Thought I'd put some photos up of my new DIY 80 Gal tank.
I built the Stand and Hood with the help of my kids, as it's my first attempt I don't think it turned out too bad!
I've just come back to Fish Keeping after an absence of about 20 years. :shock:
Looking forward to getting some great advice and seeing some really excellent set-ups!

An update on my tank above.

Just upgraded my 5ftx1.5ftx1.5ft 80 gal for a 5ftx1.5ftx3ft 160 gal.
Finished the set up and transferred my community fish yesterday and just started looking clearer.

Stil need to finish the trim on the stand and hood I've made.

I've gone for half sand/half gravel substrate, with full planting.
I'm very pleased with result and the fish seem really happy :)

Let me know what you guys think?

Nice to see you around again - and congrats on the upgrade so soon!

The hood looks neat - you built it? Show and tell, please!
