    I think I have a decent argument for my case

    By doing what I am thinking, it would put the tank out of the main part of the living room, and put her favorite reading chair, the new reading lamp she just got, and its book shelf in its place lol

    Plus. I would offer a spring cleaning of the living room while I am at it lol

    The moving the tank to the other side of the room was enough to get the go ahead! Let the planning begin!

    Ok, been thinking about the plan.

    First step will be to build the "tower" for the 10g tanks. Plan here is 3 high, would really like a 12" shelf below, but really not looking like the height will work out. I'm 6'2" and don't want the top of the tank over my head
    This tower will be painted black

    Then the tough part will be the planning for the 75g stand / canopy. I'm not sold on having a canopy yet or not. While it is a clean look, I have the breeder box I stick on the tank at times, accessing the HOB filters etc etc that I just think it will get in the way. Still deciding if the 75g stand will be stained or black, if I do black, can I do nice molding or would that look weird?

    How do people paint stands black and still see the wood grain?

    I feel like I can build the stand no problem, its just the finish work (doors, molding etc) that has me nervous.

    And if anyone is a "plant arrangement pro" I could use some tips on layout

    I am thinking the 2 pieces of driftwood will go together on the right side, a mix of rocks on the left (and around base of wood) and then have the middle open.

    Plant list is
    3 Amazon Swords
    2 Red Wendtii Crypts
    Moneywort (7 stems)
    Rotala Rotundofolia (10 stems)
    Hygro Angustofolia (a lot)
    1 Anubius Nana
    A few dwarf sag
    2 Sag Chilensis
    A few Java Ferns

    What do you guys think of this

    http://rochester.craigslist.org/for/3866171408.html

    I probably could get it for about $300, and if I sold the t5 and filter (say $100 for both) I'd have the set up for about $200. Or I found a guy selling just a 75 for $75.

    Then I could always go the new route and buy a new set up (tank, lids, light) for $170 at the LFS. I plan to wire cfl fixtures into the canopy, so the lights aren't big selling points to me.

    Thoughts?

    I would jump on the 400 deal personally... a 90 would be huge for you and awesome at the same time.

    Yea, my stock wouldn't change for awhile, but would need to look into better hardscape. I sent the guy a message. If he is willing to deal I'll probably grab it. While the whole stand/canopy isn't exactly what I wanted, I could clean it up and add what I need

    ie, I don't like that you can see the tank trim on the bottom. I would need to install a few small doors in the canopy, would need to cut out openings for my AC110's in the back.

    But its still a decent deal
