This is my first post here. I am brand new to aquariums... I've wanted one forever and finally took the plunge. I have been keeping a small 6 gal
Eclipse System but have been wanting a big one. I found this one on craigslist. It retails for $350 at PetSmart but I paid considerably less 8)
Anyway here it goes:
Marineland 60 Gallon Heartland tank and stand:
I have since removed the stickers and cleaned the tank up a little more.
Some plants from Michaels. It's amazing how much cheaper these are than at a pet shop!
And a few rocks from a local stone yard (Not washed yet)
In the near future:
This tank did not have the light hoods so I am adding the Sedona Canopy to make it more appealing as a fixture in the room.
I am also still deciding on filtration. This will be an African Cichlid tank so I'm leaning towards 2 Marineland Emperor 400 filters but that's still up in the air. I also need a heater or two. My Eclipse System pretty much stays between 79-80 on it's own, but I'm not sure how that'll change when it gets cooler outside.
I have added a few pieces of driftwood (Nice big center piece and a really cool piece of grapevine. Planning to use pool filter sand and some crushed shell as substrate.
Anyway, that's what I have going so far.
