My new CL 46 Bowfront deal set-up pics!

46g Bow front with stand, light, glass top, and a "box of extras" (3 power filters, heater, etc)...

Getting ready for overnight leak test:


Of course, it passed the leak test! woot woot! Now on to moving it to its new place and getting it level. This is not good!:


Got it all leveled. Time to lay some subtrate!:


Filled up now and looking a littttttle cloudy! Have the Emperor running filled with floss to catch the dust....

What...you think I'd leave you on a cliffhanger like that?

Of course Ive got more pics!

New slate that I bought... and a plant or two from my established tank:


To do a 'super cycle', I took filter media from my established tank and put it in the new filter. I added plants from my established tank as well as a mug full of gravel. I then waited a day or two to add fish and install my established power filter on the new tank. The new tank has 2 power filters - 1 established and 1 not:


I bought this a few months ago after my Stealth Pro heater went zonkers and killed a bunch of my fish. I LOVE this thing - it acts as a temperature alarm (high temp and low), filter media check alarm, water change, etc:


Meet "Mr. (or Miss?) Personality"..my pouting Silver Dollar - Every time I net him, it gets mad and does this for a day or two. But once it forgets, hes back to be his (or her?) regular self:

Ahhhh....its a Beautiful thing!! Look how nicely the (noisy) Emperor filter cleared up the dust after a couple days. Really polished the water nicely.



Thanks for looking - any suggestions?
