Hi every one, just got registered here and want to share my tanks with you :)

i currently have 4 tanks and looking for the 5Th for my Oscar

600Liters (150Gallons) Turtle/Cichild tank
170Liters (45Gallons) Oscar tank
54Liters (14Gallons) Plant tank
18Liters (4,7Gallons) Plant/quarantine tank, thinking of make a sump out of it for the 54Liter tank

Here is my 600, it's a custom made tank and i made a filtering system from PVC

Here are the items i used

This is a picture of the intake, i put a cap on to there so i can stop the siphon so when i want to clean the pipes and the lower arrow is pointing at a joint where i can take it apart


here is a picture of the other half of the intake where i can connect the canister filters, i have room for 3 filters, the 4Th valve is used for water changes, so i just hook up a hose there and turn the valve and it starts draining the tank, then i just hook the hose up to the shower water blender and fill the tank, really! easy :)

Here is the room for the filters i have one Filstar Xp3 and a Sacem 1000L/h

Here is the outlet valves

I replaced that 90° pipe with a spraybar that i made from PVC

And here it is




And this is how it looks now



here is my 170 AquaEL tank



i am using a AquaEL UniMAX 250 canister-filter (650L/h)


here is the 54, i just started in the live plant thing and i like it :)
here i just finished planting them

and 12 days later :)


And just for fun here is a picture of my parents Koi pond that is 35.000Liters (around 9100Gallons)


So what do you think about the tanks ?

Wow!!!!!11

Those are amazing tanks
The first tank is cool with the metal.

But for the first planted tank you put 54 gallon planted, i think it might be a typo.

Nice tanks and :nicefish:

Thank you all for a great compliment :)

Brandon: the metal is very popular by some here in Iceland, not 54 gallon planted, 54 Liters planted ;)

Nice turtle. Looks a lot like mine. Where can he haul out of the water to bask? He'll get fungus for sure if he can't dry out once in a while. Diggin on the red lava rock.
