    Default enzof9's 90 Gallon Aquarium


    0 Not allowed!
    So this is how it all started... I was picking my nose (sitting around) at home after school and had been pondering the idea of up sizing my aquarium. I researched a bit to see what the largest tank size I could buy.

    To my delight the largest I could put was a 90 GALLON

    After a few hours on Kijiji, I saw it. A beautiful 90 gallon aquarium with a pine stand, tons of rocks and 3 filters!

    Fast forward a few days and my dad and I came home at 8:30pm with the setup.

    It included the following:

    90 gallon aquarium (obviously)
    A Tetra HOB
    An Aquaeon HOB
    An incomplete Eheim Professional 2 (missing its plumbing)
    Some sort of dual bulb T5 fixture(Marina)
    A glass cover
    A bunch of rocks
    Gravel
    And two boxes full of miscellaneous fish related things.

    By the time we got the stuff out of the car it was about 10pm.

    No poking the stuff with a stick tonight

    The next day I got home from school and removed all of the gunk and other garbage that was on it.

    After a good cleaning the stuff looked like this:

    PS what are some specs on this fixture?

    PS again: it's only been cleaned with water and a small sponge so far.

    What can I do to get off some really stubborn gunk buildup on the back upper frame of the tank? It looks like calcium buildup to me but I could be wrong.

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

    What and how do I use this pump/powerhead? Sorry for the seemingly stupid question. Thanks for answering!

    They are used for moving around the water in your tank

    You are going to love that 90 gallon tank. It is a pretty good sized tank IMO

    Question


    0 Not allowed!
    Yeah, it's pretty big compared to my 38g. Is this powerhead submersible? I tried using it in a bucket full of water and it wasn't pushing any water around. I sit malfunctioning?

    I've never used one of those models before

    All of the power heads that I have are meant to be used fully submerged in the water.

    Try goggling it and see if you can find the manufactures instructions for it

    Sorry for not having any updates since the introduction, i'm still waiting for the head gasket for the Eheim Professional 2 and the stand reinforcement (made of steel) that my dad is making for the tank. BTW a friend of mine told me that the OEM head gasket for the Eheim isn't the greatest quality it could be. He's going to get a higher quality head gasket made up for me.

    Hopefully I can actually begin filling the tank for real within the next week.

    I will do my best to keep anyone trying to follow this thread posted.

    Thanks!
