    Been wanting a large tank for sometime now and finally been able to get one. This will be a several month project and when finished will be a South America Cichlid tank. It will have a sand substrate and use a fluval fx6 for filtration. I finally got the tank and all the supplies to start on it this weekend. This is what's been accomplished so far. Here's the tank.

    Was a productive day today. I still have to make some doors and sand and paint it. I only have about 100 dollar's tied up in it for materials. So maybe another 20 to 30 dollars and it will be complete. Once I get the stand all built I'll move onto the tank. I still want to fill it to make sure it don't leak and I have to paint the back black.

    I'm just working on it as funds allow, been saving for a bit now. Had enough for the tank, materials and I ordered 120lbs of Caribsea torpedo beach sand. I still have to get the canister, lids and lights. Hopefully it will be up in January or Feb.

    So today was 60 hours I let the tank sit filled with water to check for leaks. It passed, got my wood for the doors too. Haven't decided if I'm gonna cut rabbits into the 1× 3s to slide the quarter inch plywood in or not. Well tomorrow hopefully I can pick up my sand.
