Heck ya boys and girls! Add yourselves another tank!!

That's right, I now own a second SW tank. The FW planted is no more. I took the fish back, came home, emptied it. Dumped the substrate in the creek, washed it, came inside credit card cleaned, and now I sit. Staring into my empty tank, only consisting of a powerhead (micro jet that is great for the size), heater, and filter. I have everything running except the filter because it makes a lot of splash. The water is at this level because I am going to add sand and rock, and see no reason in wasting SW.

Ok, give me two months and I will have me one awesome tank. Eventually I want it to be a GSP tank, with walls, rocks, and hardware totally covered.

Ok, the first time I added rock and sand, I did not rinse. RINSE! The sand did not settle one bit and that sux. It ran for 4 days and nothing. So today I got fed up. I went outside and rinsed and rinsed, for about 20 minutes. Then I stacked the rock the way I wanted it, by the way it looks awesome. I attacthed a picture prior to adding water. I added the water and the water is not clear, but I can see the back of the tank, where as yesterday I could not see the other side of the glass pane.

Cool setup d9hp. Everytime I see a new tank being setup I want to start my own! I have a feeling I'm going to eat my own words I put in the "FW cost" thread.
