  1. Default I'm Back and....The 75 gallon journey begins!!!


    0 Not allowed!
    Been almost a year, since i was active here. Things in my life changed for the better and i bought my first house and moved in June 1st of last year. So while i have been attending to my tanks, i really haven't been active on this site. Now that things have settled down..........I'm BACK!!!!

    Prior to me getting the house i had found some great deals on tanks and other equipment and i do mean great deals, like a fluval Fx5 for 75 bucks on craigslist.

    Since I'm no longer having to deal with issues of apartment living i can focus on making my tanks the way i really want to, meaning diy stands/canopy's/and BIGGER BIGGER BIGGER tanks. lol

    and here we go...........

    The stand... Framed out so far


    The canopy... Framed out so far


    The tank itself.....ITS SO BIG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    and all the fun toys I get to play with. I originally bought them when i bought the house. Then once things settled down, i thought, hmmmm i have all the tools lets do a diy tank and stand. WOOHOOO!



    I haven't even planned out whats gonna go inside of the tank yet, once i get the stand/canopy finished and the tank setup ill move on from there.

    more photos to come...................

    I don't know you either as I am new, but welcome back! I can't wait to see how your tank turns out!

    I know you don't know what fish, but do you have an idea whether or not you will be doing live plants?

    The Canopy is finished, just needs to be sanded and stained. I'm debating on putting some trim on, but ill wait till I get the stand completed to make that decision.




    Quick question. WHY OH WHY did i decide to do this in the summer months, It's so darn hot, i think i've lost 10 lbs just from sweating so much UGHHH!
