The 110G was a heavy beast, which weighted about 200lbs. The 6' seller, my dad and I had to bring it down from the 2nd floor of an apartment complex.
The tank didn't fit my 75G stand, because the stand was homemade. DOH! We tried to fit it in and cracked 1 side of the stand a little but it was all good lol. I quickly filled the tank with the sand, then stacked the rocks. I tried to stack them against the back glass to leave more swimming space in the front. The aquascape did not come out as I wanted. It looks like a stacked together pile of LR
now...I don't know if I should change it or not. Since water is already the tank and the tank is 30" high, moving the rock around would suck XD I only filled the tank with water to 0.5" below the overflow box's intake because my plumbing is not done. After that, I added the CSS and Maxijets ,and fired them up. Boys! The CSS went nuts for Detrius! I'm glad I bought this skimmer.
That was pretty what I did today. Doesn't it sound like alot of work AND fun?
I'll take some pictures tomorrow to show how the tank is doing
Here's a few pictures of my old 75G. I really missed it but... this 110G is gonna ROCK!
