My 75G FOWLR build thread. (woot)

After weeks of planning and debating equipment It's finally on!

So far I only have basic equipment, It will probably be months before I actually get the tank cycled and ready for fish (budget restraints) I hope to see success in this adventure from the research I did. Thanks to everyone for their previous help.

With all of that said, Here's some pics!




Stand:



Tank + stand (+ cat...)




"OOH whats THAT?"



"Sticker has lots of words" he said



Overflow box (The cat said not to drill the tank based on the sticker LOL)



ATO system and return pump in sump:



Thinking about building a bio tower.. Not sure yet..





Tomorrow I should be getting the PVC to plumb the overflow and return and maybe get the piping for the CL system.

I have been waiting for you to build this tank ever sice your first thread i saw about your parent not letting you to get the tank when you got the stand. Now my parents are doing the same thing, tell your parents thank you for infecting mine with the anti-fish disease.

Haha no problem! LOL

If you be nice about it and eventually annoy them enough (in a nice way.. more like "persuasion") they will finally let you feed your fish obsession XD

I had the same problem. They kept saying "It's so much harder and its so expensive!" (When you know what your doing it isn't THAT hard, and its only expensive if you don't buy things on sale or off of Craigslist )
