Thanks all! I'm excited about it. Got goods coming in to equip it, then I have to figure out if I can find that Bio Spira stuff. If not, I have no clue what I'm going to do. I really don't want to be killing off fish again to cycle a tank.
The stand is not a luxury stand - but it is an aquarium stand supposedly able to hold the weight of a 75 gal
. ::shrug:: I have very old and sturdy built furniture here at the house, but I was afraid to try it and ruin my old furniture. I'd hate to waste real wood...
The stand was very heavy and very tedious to put together. But I do rather like the look of it. Here's to hoping it holds.
The tank was PetSmart $164 on sale
The stand was from a LFS
about an hour away from me - $89
So far I have 3 25 lb bags of black gravel (tired of bright colors in my gravel). I can't remember but maybe they were $14.99 ea at Petsmart?
