Fish hobbyists wet dream

Oh. my. gosh.

So yesterday I picked up my 75gal aquarium. It is GORGEOUS. Remember I said I paid only $300 .. this is what I brought home with me-

*A Ehiem Professional II canister filter with a built in thermometer
*250 Watt light with ballast.
* 3 buckets full and one un opened bag of Eco Complete Planted Aquarium Substrate
*A CO2 canister with the thingy mabober it goes into
* 2 pieces of driftwood and two handfulls of pretty rocks
* A slue of chemicals, food, plant food etc
*Digital timer for the lights
*Automatic feeder
* An aqua reminder
* a python vacuum thingy

and a TON of other things that I don't know what to do with. (or know what it is). I think there is another canister filter and a bio wheel or something.

Pictures-












weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

That's quite a haul you have there! Wow.. I'd hate to see how many trucks show up at your house if you decide to give yourself a Christmas gift.

The tank is absolutely beautiful - look forward to seeing more pictures when it has fish in it.

Wow...what a DEAL! That CO2 system alone is worth a bundle...there is easily $1200+ worth of stuff there. And is that Kasselman's plant book? Thats a $75 book, and quite recent, too! I am not often envious, but you have me emerald green.

You scored yourself an incredible deal!
If the stand, lights, and canopy was included, then you got an unbelievably incredible deal!

I have the same Eheim filter and I love it! It, alone would cost about $200 with media at Big Al's.

Color me green!

Yah, the stand, canopy and tank came with it.

I am just so overwhelemd!

Sorry to make so many of ya'll green =o)

The filter is supposed to have a built in heater, but since the water isn't warm enough yet to add my pleco I went ahead and put in the 200 watt heater he gave me to help get it heated (it was a 200 wat EBO Jager heater might add hehe).

Im gunna add my pleco tonight (once the water is warm enough) and then maybe tomorrow get some plants or fish or something hehe
