44 Gallon Pentagon up and running!

Hubby and I ran around and got everything we needed to set the pentagon up... Water is still cloudy but I have faith in my AquaClear filter to change that! I can't wait to figure out what to put in there!

Thank you! I have no idea what I'm going to put in there! I'm not even sure if I have the live plants placed right... I put them down in the substrate, so I'm hoping that was the right choice! LOL So far I'm fishless cycling! I have a Pleco in my 10 gal that I'm thinking about moving over until I can find him a new home to help the cycle... plus the pet store gave me some conditioner that has the bacteria in it? So maybe that will help the cycle process as well!!

How long has that water been in there? Also get that test kit ready cause you will be doing a lot of that. You can use the water out of the other tank to speed it up with the cycle and even your filter pads from the other tank if its time to clean or change them.

I just filled it up at about midnight/ 1am this (April 1st) morning! I bought the master test kit when I bought everything for the tank as well... Anxious to try it out! As.far as the filter from the other tank goes, I don't think I'm ready for a new one and I just rinsed it out at the last water change... I am considering putting the pleco in there though...

When you do your next water change put that water in this tank to help it get going faster. PM me if you need any help

The 10 gallon has the filter that came with the kit I bought at Walmart! It's an AquaTech filter!
