Its been awhile ,but i'm back in action (quite)
Pick up a used 90 gallon tank for $400 today and will be setting it up in about a week .....FINALLY!!!!
black wooden stand
two 400 emperors
two lights--- needs a hood though
here some pics of the empty tank
going with sand base
some live plants will be added
I'm not sure what type of fish as of yet
Looks like you found an awesome deal! Please keep us posted on the journey! Love watch how a tank grows and matures into something wonder!
Welcome back to TFK!
Looks kewl. Wow a Vortex diatom filter....takes me back. You'll find that if you run the diatom filter once a week for 30 minutes or so you'll have extreme crystal clear water. (It's too powerful to run routinely, but for a weekly or monthly maintenance it's awesome.)
Keep us posted.
Grats on your buy! I know you said you don't know what you plan to get fish wise. I saw those Wardley products and I'd like to warn you that they are pretty poor quality as per nutrition. So I wouldn't use them if I were you. There are better brands out there.
I bought some Wardley stuff by accident... blame a moment of disorientation at the fish store.
I read the ingredients when I got home. Wheat middlings was the first ingredient... really?
Stick with the NLS stuff.
Looking forward to pictures along the way.
Yeah i know its kmart fish(lol) food but it came with the package of the tank.I threw it right into the garbage right after i took the pic ..
Filled the tank up today, no leaks
The emperor 400's are really loud, so in a month or so, i'll be buying a new filter's
heater is going on and off with the wrong temperatures .ill be buying a new one
background will be change to black
plants will be added by next week,fish maybe two weeks or so no rush ..
diatom filter is connect now and its clearing the water very fast .Its still cloudy but its been on only a half hour as im writing this.
sand is cleaned out
rocks are cleaned
some fake plants added
didnt check the water yet .ill just wait another 3 days then check it
heres more pics.
Wow, that tank is going to look AWESOME when it clears up! I LOVE that cave on the far left, in the back. Did you make that with rocks, or buy it as is? It looks like one my Bolivian Ram would love. He has two, but is very picky about his caves, lol. What do you plan to stock it with?
Very original looking--wish I was that handy!
