My wall is about 3 1/2' long and 16" tall. I'm betting I'll use more than 4 tubes. Probably more like 6-8. Right now I'm cleaning the tank and flushing it out. My only problem is that I bought an Aqeon vacuum and it doesn't fit any of my faucets. My faucets are too new and don't unscrew to fit the hose adapter. I'm having to use buckets!

It's possible that the faucet aerator needs a special tool. I've noticed that lately with new faucets that I've installed.

That figures! That sounds like a "guy" project. I might have to wait for my Dad to get unbusy so I can call him over for help. My teenage son's not into helping me with this aquarium stuff. He thinks I'm a little insane for starting this! LOL!!

Just looked at your rock wall. That looks awesome! Great job. If my angels hadn't started breeding I wouldn't have spent my resources on setting up to raise the fry, I would have been doing a wall like this.

Thanks! I'm ready to get it all done so I can start putting fish in the tank. I love angel fish. You'll have to post some pictures of the fry. I don't think I've ever seen "babies" before.

I have been keeping a pic diary if you would in my albums. I just started so there's not much yet but the parents and the first spawn

I would love to have a 4' tank in my living room. Maybe next house. I am busy enough with trying to get my setup complete. Looking forward to seeing yours up and running
