    Talking Bisons' 50g Tank


    0 Not allowed!
    Okay, the 29g saltwater was a no go. So we are setting up our 50g that has been empty for almost a year. Anyways here come the pics...

    All the stuff we purchased at the LPS, paid about $70 for everything. The Whisper 60s were ONLY $11.49, since they are coming out with the EX line.
    And the 30 was ONLY $7.69, and the 10 was just above $3.

    Tank before water or anything.

    Filling up the tank.

    All filled up with water and 25lbs of gravel, somehow 25lb of gravel was enough to give a minimum coverage of a quarter in. everywhere and atleast half an in. for the half of the area.
    __________________________________________________ _______________
    Tank Stats(Day 1):

    Capacity: 50g
    WPG: N/A
    Filtration: Whisper 60 - x2
    Heater: AquaClear 200w
    Temperature: 74 degrees Fahrenheit
    pH: 7.2

    I'll be picking up an ammonia test kit within a couple days.

    At least in my book, it's either planted freshwater or fake-planted freshwater. Toss in some driftwood too.

    I would also lose that background and put on a solid black one.

    I know driftwood would look nice, but that stuff is expensive. I don't have to pay for it though so I'll see if we can get some.

    pH is on a rise, which means ammonia might be rising too.
