ThomasLC Posted August 23, 2021 Share Posted August 23, 2021 Finally had a move in day! I had to refurbish everything. The stand required sanding and paining. I went with the distressed look as it matches our décor more then the more traditionally stained or solid wood coloring. It has a new seamless sump system that operates with 55 gallons of water and has a total capacity of 75 gallons. I have done multiple power failure tests to insure no issue. I am using H2Overflows and Syphon Stopper returns both plumbed up with my custom plumbing. I didn't want the large black overflows it came with as with the paint and plant the piping will disappear mostly over time. 1350 GPH return pump. I might add a second for the just in case and peace of mind. 2 500 watt Vivosun heaters I wanted to be able to quickly heat the large water changes I do on a regular basis. I like that these have a digital read out or target temp and current temp. Shut off automatically if dry, has the adjustment for the temp on the outside of the tank/sump and the body is titanium so no glass breaking. Using two Aquarium Co-Op sponge filters for the breaking of surface tension. Might add a air stone in the sump to aerate the ceramic media. Using two Fluval 3.0 I purchased from Aquarium Co-Op as well for lighting. Has a new upper brace and the old one was brittle from the halogen lights it had baking it. New glass lids from Pets Mart. Sub straight is Eco-Complete Red. Spider wood Drift wood Plants Various. I will learn the names sooner or later. Fish as as follows: (currently as more are planned) 5 dicus - 2 mated when in the old tank. If this continues I will have to build a breeder tank. 3 Angle Fish - 2 older and much larger and a new guy 10 Rummy nose tetras 6 rainbow fish 4 males 2 females (at least with these fish you can tell the differance. 7 Celebes rainbow fish, 3 males and 4 females 2 gold nugget plecos 2 corydoras brevirostris - 6 more coming very soon. So the soon to add are 3 more dicus maybe 4. 4 more angle 6 more corys 6 loaches and 2 rams. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
