It would look a lot better if you made a tank out of wood and lined it. 8'x6'x2.5' = 900 gallons.I hadn't seen those reviews. Good to know. I'll probably look into another stock tank or build a pond with liner
That is my next big project.
Are you going to have substrate? If you are, Tractor Supply also sells crushed coral and oyster shell. That is what I have in my cichlid tank. Nice and white, but upi may have to vacuum it.
As I recall it was pretty cheap, but I had to rinse it real good.
Good luck on the build out!
