New 37 gallon
Hey guys.

Well, MTS has struck again. I picked up a 37 gallon tank. There's no fish in it yet. I plan to move my 6 Harlequins from the 10 gallon plus eventually add an angel or two and some cories. My 10 gallon will then become my QT/hospital tank.

Here's a couple pics.

Nice set up!!! That looks great!

Lol it always seems funny seeing tanks with 37 gallons, Just seems odd, like what a random number.

I really like the sand, and if I may make a suggestion, you need a background :wink:

Can't wait to see some fish in it!

Love the driftwood with the anubia. Can't wait to see a shoal or school of cory's scurrying about in the bottom. :)

Your tank looks really nice :wink: !

I love the sand substrate, I'm thinking that the next time I get a new tank I may try the sand because it looks so great.

How do you get your driftwood to sink?

Lovely looking tank Jeaninel :)

Thanks guys.

Little-Fizz, there is a black background on it. lol

Kim, that driftwood was actually a piece I originally had in my 10 gallon. It barely fit in there! It was releasing alot of tannins so I took it back out and left it soaking in a bucket. It never did go back into the 10 because my filter gave out and I replaced it with an internal filter meant for 10-30 gallons. Well, that filter took up more space and there was not enough room for the driftwood. So when I got this tank I new it would be perfect. I swiped the anubias from my 10 gallon also. Sorry to ramble on but to answer your question, it had always sank. I think it must be the type of wood or something. It's rather heavy.

:shock: HAH! :lol: Oh dear, it seems that my eyes are failing me! :oops:

Yes, upon second evaluation I most definitely see that your walls are a lighter colour and the background on your fish tank is indeed black.

Jeez, normally my excuse would be I had just woken up, but that was certainly not the case :demented:

Well, I transferred the Harlequins to their new home and they are really diggin' it! I moved a sponge from the 55 to the 37 to help the cycle. Also, picked up 2 angelfish today and they are in the QT tank. I'll try to get some pics of them up in the next day or so.
