Finally Godzilla has a new home!

I've had a goldfish named Godzilla for about 8 years.

My son brought him home from the Carnival....

Well he's grown out of 2 tanks, but I think I finally have one big enough.

I picked up a 70 gallon tank, stand, and Eheim Canister Filter for $125.00! Gotta love Craig's List.

Anyways... I moved him and his buddies over to their new home.
I used most of the gravel from the old tank and also transferred the HOB filter (didn't want to leave all of the good stuff behind!)

Anyway... I thought I would post a few pics.
The "new" tank is no where near complete. But it's a start. I plan on adding a background and building a canopy for lighting. And I will probably paint the stand as well.

This is Godzilla in a 1 gallon bag.

He didn't really care for it....

I thought he was going to bust out!

Then in his new home

And the new 70 gallon.


I'll post more pics as I "spiff" it up a bit in the next few weeks.

Thanks everyone.
I actually have an Oscar in there with him.... Dang thing acts just like the goldfish... (Long story... my wife... ) crazy stuff.

Anyways... my next project.. well my next, next project (after I finish refurbishing and setting up my 110 gallon) is to install a 165 gallon indoor pond. And that will have to be Godzilla's final home.
Not sure about the Oscar yet...... I've tried moving him to other tanks .. but he pouts.. If he stays with the Goldies.. happy as a bug in a rug..
