Guppiesgonewild Posted February 14, 2022 Share Posted February 14, 2022 (edited) Hello. I thought I would take some time this morning to introduce myself. I am recently getting back into the hobby. 10ish years ago I had two fish tanks. One with Oscar's and angels and the other was a comunity tank. I started building a new setup back in July or so of 2021. With work and other responsibilities I did not get water into the tank until just after Thanksgiving. I am located in Montana. So if there are any others in Montana that would be really cool. The tank is a 75 gallon that I drilled for an overflow. The stand and canopy I built out of 3/4 cabinet grade plywood. In the bottom of the stand I have a 20 or 29 gallon sump. I can't remember and need to measure. I included a picture and it may be hard to tell but after setting the stand in the house I poured some of the counter top epoxy in the surface where the tank goes. I built a bulkhead on the back edge and the epoxy is between 1/8 and 1/4 inch. The intention of this was to insure it was perfectly level and provided even support to the tank. I have a CO2 system and the lighting is provided by a harbor freight led shop light (will upgrade I'm waiting on the aquarium coop lights) Currently in the tank I have a variety of tetras, Cory cats, shrimp, guppies, Mollies Danios, otos, and a pleco. It a different story but I also have two small tanks that are full if fry at the moment. Some upcoming projects I plan on possibly doing to the setup included; -Adding an automatic water change -new lights for the display tank -building a bigger sump. This would either be from acrylic or a off the shelf glass tank. -adding a dosing pump -a whole different project would be to build a guppy breeding setup. Anyways I have included some pictures. If anyone has any question or comments don't be shy. Edited February 14, 2022 by Guppiesgonewild 2 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
