First tank 220 gal (US)

Setting up my first tank. Its been a while in the making. Aquariums ltd aquarium, custom steel stand made at a local fabricators. Fluval FX5, 2x150w TMC growbeams, 3x Fluval e 300w.

Currently fishless cycling at 24.5'c.

Will be stocking with South Americans. Not quite a biotope due to the planting.

Also picked up a bargain 10gal nano I'm setting up for a betta. That's almost cycled after only 3 days.

I'll try get a photo up but got a lot of bloom on the big tank.

Cheers.

Hopefully the wood will sink soon, its been a week. Got quite a lot of what looks like cynobacteria? Its like a velvety coating on the wood and some on the gravel.
