I'm finally able to start setting up a new tank! This one is a little bit larger than the two 30 gallon longs I had several years ago, and this will be the first tank I've had since. I have realized that quite a few things have changed since I've kept an aquarium, and there are more options to choose from with lighting, filtration, and substrate.
I've decided to stick with a few of my tried-and-true basics and build on those.
Here's what I have setup so far (I'm moving yet again, so this will be a slow process, but I will update as much as possible):
40 gallon breeder aquarium
80 pounds Eco-Complete
EHEIM Ecco Pro External Canister Filter
API Freshwater Master Test Kit
Python and a few random pieces of equipment
Tank and stand have been setup and leveled and leak test performed:
The two boxes on the left contain 80 pounds of Eco-Complete, and the paper bags contain random stuff. The Eheim arrived after the picture was taken.
The picture has been moved to a different location, and I am still trying to figure out how all the equipment will be hidden underneath the stand.
