Awesome to hear! I hope you do a tank journal for it. What are your plans for it?

Nice! Keep us posted on what you do with it Smile

I keep trying to think where I could fit a 55 in my apartment - I feel bad for my chameleon badis in their little ten gallon!

I know where I could fit a 55, even a 75... Problem is that I haven't been able to convince the other half yet....

shell tells me that based on a photo that we have not got the tank sitting level
water appears level but she says it is the stand....

tomorrow we will have to drain some water out and try to level it!
my husband was simply thrilled to hear this!

Steve

water is all in my idle Steve!!!!!
what do you think might be going in here?!
a few of our goldfish of course!
slowly upgrading as our $ will allow us!
this is really beautiful tank
we got all of this stuff for $150
the tank is less than one yr old....the filter 6 months old plus the stand so I think we got an awesome deal!!!!!
of course what I really want is a pond
we have not forgotten about this!
4 fancies are still very happy in their permanent 75 and now we are slowly working on the comets!

Mmmm, so if the 4 comets go into this tank, then that means that a 36 gallon becomes available according to your signature.

So the next question is: what will go into the 36?! Rolling Eyes

at the moment nothing....
we may part with the 36?!
I am hoping sometime in the near future to get a 90 for some of the comets!
of course what I would love is 220 but haven't found a good deal!  and also my dream pond which may become a reality next summer...mmm.....
Some of Our finned babies are in the new 55 and are having a fabulous time
They just said,
"We have checked into a 4 star hotel...thanks so much!!!
Love them all sooooo MUCH!
This new tank is awesome...complete with top with LED lights...just love the lights!

New tank and equipment means all new fun setting up, choosing your layout, and picking your fish. Congratulations and have a blast doing it.  Smile
