Dary do you have a build thread for your new tank?
Ryan,...I dropped by home depot on my way home and said hi to everyone for you and found a nice sheet of styrofoam installation. ( 1/2" ) and cut it down to fit under my new tank which HASN'T showed up yet at the lfs
,...also bought 132#'s of sand at my other lfs
but may get a little more later on,.... as far as a new tank building thread,..nah,...this looks like it's developing to be Dary's universal what ever goes on thread so with the moderators permissions we'll just keep it going,..... One thing I'm going to do is use all new sand in the new tank,...reason being that previously I had black sand ( gravel) in my 75 gal
tank which looked rather hideous IMO
so I added some white sand over the top of it which looked great for awhile but soon it sank and the black gravel rose to the top as in a fight for dominance ,.... So this time I'm going white sand 100% this time,..... I think I'm going to try and seed my sand for a couple of few weeks or so to build up a bacteria colony BEFORE I introduce it into the new setup,... I don't know if my timing really sucks on this whole thing or not but my 75 gal
tank is really starting to look beautiful these days.., I suppose once I actually get everything set up and transferred into the new 135 it'll look great but,....that's another story...
