Smile SumthingsFishy's 50g Tall Planted Journey

Hey all,
Im somewhat of a newcomer to the forums, I've had a few posts here and there helping others with questions and sometimes asking questions of my own. But today I am happy to say that I got a great deal on a 50g Tall with a stand/cabinet from a seller on craigslist ($60 can you believe it?!). I really can't wait to document my journey with this tank on this thread.

I already own a successful 20g tall planted which is becoming overcrowded (Having 12 fish in there including: 1 Angelfish, Peppered cory, Albino cory, Albino Pleco, Blue Gourami, 5 Neons, and 2 Black mollies). The fish I am planning on moving to the 50g are the Angelfish and one of the black mollies (Most likely the female because she is taking a beating from the male.She refuses to mate with him and I quite honestly don't blame her because he's a jerk.)
First things first, I've filled the tank and let it sit with no sign of a leak. I've also cleaned the tank and decided to Plasti-Dip the back side of it Black, that way if one day I decide that I want a change in background I can peel it right off. Last night I moved the tank up to my bedroom and it looks great.

I will add pictures of the tank that I had taken post plasti dip/cleaning once I get home from school. If you're interested to see where I take this tank build, feel free to subscribe to the thread and post questions! I'm always on the forum especially since I have the mobile app.

Here are the photos post plasti-dip and cleaning process. I am filling the tank and aquascaping (sort of) as I am posting this.

Thanks everyone for the show of interest! I will post pictures of the filled tank right now, but I must warn you it isn't very visually appealing since I am Fish out cycling the tank. Right now I only have two pieces of Driftwood in with two small anubias plants i propagated from my 20g. The only problem I have is the Aquaclear 50 I had received from amazon was too noisy, so I will be shipping it back for a replacement AC50. I've had good experience in my 20 with the AC filter as far as noise and filter quality goes so I have faith my replacement AC 50 will work out okay.

Hey Koopa! It is more than likely a 45 tall but the seller on craigslist advertised it as a 50-60 gallon so I'm just assuming its a 50. I did check the volume corresponding to the measurements of the tank and it does check out to ~45 gallons.
