IHateAlgae's 55 Gallon Native Fish Tank
THIS IS NOT FINISHED.
This is the start of my 55 gallon half-aquascape tank. Like an aquascape but it's construction will be a bit more leisurely.
This is the start so far.
The camera contrast made it look ugly, it's just a bit awkward in concept setup but I'm working on it.
I will be soaking the real driftwood (the light decorations) thoroughly and then preceding to use my leftover gravel then steal from the 30 gallon. Especially since I've spent 240$ already on this tank alone. Not including original purchases.#WarOnAlgae

So what native fish are you planning?

More creek dace blacknose chubs, more ghost shrimp, crayfish now that I got more hiding spots and know to use calcium injects, and maybe expand the school of mosquito fish.#WarOnAlgae

I like the hardscape.
Put in a black background it will help.When everything goes without a hitch its only then do you realize something is wrong

So, to recap, can an EHEIM 2217 be started this way?
>shut valves and disconnect input & output tubes.
>Fill canister to the tip with water then put on lid letting excess water and bubbles splash down the sides onto a towel.
>Fill tubes with water as much as possible.
>Reconnect tubes and open valves.
>Turn on filter and shake.
BTW, this is some later progress. Right now it is filled with water and one UGF is running, the other side (being seperate from the other) will be a RUGF. And I do wish I had soaked the black & water-staining driftwood a bit more. :P
