I'm no plumber, but I can and do appreciate the PVC industrial art. I have the same depth and width tank, just wished I had enough room for the extra one even two feet length. Let the scaping begin.Thanks! I’m a plumber and pretty OCD so I really had no excuse to screw that part up. At least I can help members with plumbing related questions until I hone my fish skills haha.
definitely agree with your new choice vs. the arowana/ray. youve got a lot of options with that setup. gouramis, severums, acaras, definitely an array of bottom feeders and a big pleco too.Thanks for the kind words everyone. As far as stock goes I originally bought this tank in hopes of buying a stingray and Arowana. I have since changed my mind and am interested in the following fish (I haven’t looked into compatibility issues yet so please help if you can) :
Polleni Cichlid (paratillapia polleni)
Electric Blue Carpintis Cichlid
Discus (variety of colours hopefully)
Need a snail or fish option for algae/sediment eating
I figured it would be more fun having a variety of fish to watch and let me daughter pick and name some etc.
AGREED. I will be filling the system this weekend if all goes to plan. It’s ok for me to pour the substrate in after the water is filled I’m assuming?Looks great man! Glad you took the time to do it right. One thing to consider...you may want to do a test fill/run before you do any scaping. You'll want to be sure everything works as planned and there are no issues. Judging by the attention to detail and the careful planning, you won't have any problems at all, but I'd still do it to be sure. Nothing worse than getting a build all together and discovering a change needs to be made!
Nice! I’ll get some filters to remove chlorine as well. Also I’ll do a pH test to see where I’m at.I plumbed my tank right to the house plumbing and run it through a filter I installed in the stand to remove chlorine. My tap water is relatively hard and pH of around 7.8. Works fine for all my fish. As far as cycling my media...I've been keeping fish so long on such a large scale that I always have lots of cycled media on hand to jump start a system.View attachment 1283665
