I always used a pillowcase. Fill the pillow case with sand, put in a hose, and rubber band or zip tie the end of the pillow case around the hose. Always worked well for me

Finally I have the tank where I want it. Had to get help from friends to move a massive tv that was sucking up too much space and I kept bumping into the corner of the tank while entering the room. Tank is filled, sand is clean, and everything is a gogo.

I LOVE MY LIGHTING!!! There is a thunderstorm button! I added a video too!

Okay updated photos and I started the fishless cycle today! Bought some plants but I will add them in a few days as I just added the ammonia and bacteria.




My dad got this in the Bahamas a few weeks ago :3



My dad picked this up in Hawaii like 20+ years ago and my grandma had it the whole time.



This rock is from a local river.



This is the whole tank. I am considering adding a row of Amazon Swords to line the back of the tank when I can afford/want to, but I like how simple it looks. Thoughts?

It looks like a nice big tank. I look forward to seeing how it comes along.

Great fish, expensive as in Australia, I paid $49 each for mine when they were only about 4 cm, I've seen them around the same size for $100
