    I have started a new build. This build is going to have two tanks on top of each other. The larger tank is going to be a 360 L and the smaller one a 300 L.

    Atleast one will be Central American Cichlids. The other one will be Pacu or CA Cichlids. Don't anyone worry. I have a 15 000 gallon pond for the Pacu when they outgrow the tank.

    Are the tanks going to slide in or is this a concrete tank build? And is that dirt I see on top for planting plants? It all looks pretty interesting.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    A 15000 gallon pond sounds about right for some dovii and umbi to me. Very nice build. I see there are some advantages to living in a warm climate.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    The tanks are going to slide in. Yes it is dirt on top of the tanks for planting. Will put bougainvillea, ferns or another hanging plant there.

    The thought has crossed my mind.

    The first update will come soon as the build actually is a bit further along than the pictures indicate. The tanks have been slide in and the lower one has the background attached.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.
