Ideas needed for next project
Back from a week in Vegas and getting ready for my next project. Happy to announce that my 10 year old did a great job taking care of the 55g while I was out. A few things to report since my last couple of posts:
- Algae problem is well under control now with the addition of the ottos.
- Plants are thriving (light doses of Excel and added flourish tabs)
- Fish are all active and healthy
I have been on the looking for my next project. I had been trying to land a deal on a 92 gallon corner bow front but that does not look like it is going to happen. I have located many 75, 90, and 125's. A 125 long would be a bit much, from a space point of view. I did find a 120 Cube for a hundred bucks, tempted but not sure what to do with it. I think the dimensions are 30x30x31 so it is a deeper tank. Still would want to do a freshwater planted tank will need stronger lighting to reach the bottom. What kind of fish would do well in there?

The 120 cube sound like a good tank and it would be perfect for an angelfish or discus tank. They both prefer aquariums that are higher than most standard tanks.
Maybe some angels, dwarfcichlids/flagcichlids and tetras.Do as I say. Not as I do.

Hey Hardy! I was looking at one like that in my area. Some people think these things hold their value like gold.... on another note do you have any problems with your fish munching on your wisteria?

But yea the prices on some of the tanks people find are nuts. I would value that tank (if only tank, stand and light) around 200 max

Guy by me selling his entire fish room. Includes a 90, 2 75's stands etc.... I'm sure if you wanted more than one you could work out a wicked deal.
the 90 was $100
Plus some change for the stands
