Took me 8hours start to finish and weeks of planning, hope you all like this, I used all my stuff from my old tank and some new stuff too, ill exsplain more soon, here is the pics for now. Thoughts welcome. After finding the correct size tank, decided i was going to need something strounger for this tank. Found myself a unit for just over a hundred that was only 1 inch bigger in all directions on the top, PERFECT! After building i was amazed to how nice it looked, What a start! After slideing my old setup aside i placed the unit in its new home and with help i placed the new tank on neopreme onto the top of the unit. You can see the size difference between the two, Next i started the dredded part of tareing down the old setup. I wanted to keep all my plants and substrate so i seperated the top gravel very carefully and placed that into a bucket and then scraped up the eco complete that was left and placed that into another bucket, as for plants and fish. The large plants went into the holding tank with the fish, nice a snug. And the small delicate plants went into pots and tubs. I then placed my hardscape within the tank and then got my new buckets of echo complete, three bucketsof the biggest ones i could get, and mixed that with my old eco complete as it was only 4 months old and had plenty of nutrients within. I then placed that into the tank and smoothed equaly all over as i want a full plated and carpeted setup. I then did the same for my topping gravel. As you can see i have gone for an open middle scape as i want to see the fish swim betweens zones left and right. Overall im very happy, even thou it took forever to fill, But its well worth it. Ideas welcome. TODAYS PICS nov, 09, 2009 rearanged right hand side tonight as it just wasnt working out for me. Going to see how it grows in now. fingers crossed that flow is alot better than what it was before.
