    hi all, when i was a kid my dad had a 10 foot tank! it was spectacular!!!! i used to help him maintain it and we each had our own fish. well i decided it was time to pick it up again but it had been awhile so i started off small, 1st with a 7g then a 14g and a 55g (sorry i dont have a camera so no picks but i will get 1 shortly) and now ive finally found a big aquarium!!!!! i am now the proud owner of a 333g !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how cool is that!!! it is in need of some tender love and care as the bottom is cracked but ive decided to inlay a sheet of perspex and silicon it down and ive sorted a pump that i will build a filter for that pumps 4500 liters/hour and i already have 1 that does 1000 liters/hour and some gravel, so once i fix the leak oh the possibilities it boogles the mind! is just over 2 meters long and almost 1 meter square. while it cycles im gonna have such wonderful dreams of how to aqua scape it and what to stock it with, planted or not and any advice/cautions/suggestions would be most welcome!!!!!!!!! i will put pics of it up as soon as i get my camera but this journey will take some time ooooooh im so excited

    The journey is yours to take. I just hope you get a camera soon and take some of us with you. I would drive myself nuts thinking of what to do with a 333g tank. I don't even have room for my 20g just the 55g is running and it will have to do for now. So please take some pics I wanna go to.

    For optimal filtration you'll want to turn over a tank that size at least 3000g/hr (thats 12,000 ltrs). You want small fish or big fish? Pics please.

    Its wide enough to very comfortably do some large fish or an awesome scape for smaller fish.

    Pics as often as possible please!
