You could probably cycle it pretty quick if you use your filter material from your current tank.
I feel your pain on the significant other giving grief about maintenance... Mine does the same thing... She's getting better about it though. Your GSP chews your seal? I just recently witnessed my clown loach do that in my 125g, I really hope he doesn't hurt the seal on that tank.

Clown loaches, luckily, aren't as evil puffers- puffers have hard and sharp beak and teeth, I would keep an eye on it though. He wasn't chewing it- I didn't have time to handfeed him so I put a krill in there with him and ran my dog around the block. He was attacking.

Well clown loach actually have teeth similar to puffers, but true, they are far from aggressive. That sucks about your tank though, at least it's not ruined, just a pain in the butt to fix.

Red face Sorry about the time gap

My puffs makeshift stand finally lost its stability, thank you puppy dog, so I'm still putting together another stand, my house is an 1830's colonial, in the process of restoring currently, I know this sounds awful- I am actually using his tank as a leveler for reinforcing and leveling my living room. I have added more live sand, more rock. Right before this I over vacuumed my diatoms and had a small phosphate problem, needless to say, am back and better than ever for my FOWLR!! I have macro algae, and I have some sponges and anemone along with coralline developing on my base rock- will have pics tomorrow. I'm going to be planting a single apongee in my micro betta tanks ( 3 2g holding tanks) tomorrow- my giant dufus dog, took out my bathroom deco 5.5g bowl, so now I'm once again keeping all of my aquaria secured in covered acrylic tanks right at my bedside, again, lol. I just broke my cats of their curiosities enough to have open deco bowl with separators and am ordering live rock tonight to redo my nano (used base rock and almost button/ mushroom coral ready to save my CUC in my puffer tank)... I am an aqua nut!! I now have a 1g fish bowl filled with waste from trimming back my planted tank and a small amount of change out water to breed nuisance snails for my puffer. post more pics in morning.

Correct it is mixed. The turtle is an RES. The tank is a 125g tank. Since the video I have also upgraded my 10g to a 37g for my Figure 8.

Is that a figure 8 or dwarf puffer? Are your plants real?

Figure 8 (unless all my research is fail) and all the plants are fake.

These are some pics of him when he was in a 10g before his upgrade.
The crayfish was for feeding and once he killed it and has his fill the rest went to the oscars in my big tank.
