Thanks Xue!

I will be back with 3x the fun. I want to add two 300 gallon planted tank and emersed setups.

I will definitely do a couple of emersed setups, I just need to figure out how to incorporate them into my automatic water changing system.

holy cow! two 300g! I am hoping you are going to grow slow growing/low maintainence plants. You'll break your back trimming if you do fast growing stems.

Please do share your ideas on your automatic water changing system. I got all my home imporvement chores done and I am already gathering materials for my green house.

I like big tanks!!! Easier to keep good water quality and tons of space for planting!

Yes, all slow growing/low maintenance plants. No more stem plants for me.

I might do a write up on the water changing system if I have time. But it is pretty easy and straight forward.

Hung,

Good luck on your move! Are your 300 gallon aquariums going to be glass or acrylic? It would make a difference in weight. Personally, I like the idea of a 300 but the reality is something different. Will you be able to easily reach bottom to work with the plants? I know you are thorough and plan well, so I am just wondering how you will approach this?

Dang Hung, good luck on your move. I finally got a Flamingo to grow emergent and just plunged it a few days ago. I hope it doesnt melt. I am planning to keep it submerged for the summer to see how it does. Heres a pic from a month ago of my big one. The tiny one still hasnt moved

I can't lift glass!!! It will be acrylic! I should be able to get to the bottom as it will only be 24" tall. It has similar dimension to 180gallon tank except it is 2 ft longer.

I haven't work out all the details yet as I need to find/buy the new place. The plan will be determined by the new place layout.

Anyone want to buy a 3 bedroom bungalow in Parma, Ohio? Everything is updated and move in ready! Also has a small insulated and heated fishroom?

I was lazy replanting my Kota Tingii since it was pulled a few weeks ago. To my surprise, it has sent a spate.

You need to get your emersed setup going after your move
