    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.

    Congrats on the new tank

    I'm looking forward to seeing this one come together

    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.
