The new begining, M@TT's 125g
I have been out of the planted tank hobby for nearly 4 years now and am finally able to get back into it.
This tank build is far from being complete. I still need to frame the canopy and skin the entire thing and create a back ground of some sort. I typically go black, but I think this time I am going to try a lighter color.
The tank is a standard 125g but I drilled 2 bulkheads on the far right end and created a acrylic coast to coast overflow. The sump is a 40g acrylic setup powered by a mag18. I recently scored a nice 5lb co2 tank and regulator and have just been running it for 2 days.
The wood is still buoyant so rocks have been placed on top to weigh it down. Now that the tank is cycled I have removed the majority of the starter plants and will now focus on acquiring the plants that fit my aquascape vision.
