It's official!! I started the tank up on Saturday!!

I ended up getting flourite for the substrate though... It really does'nt look bad. I went to a LFS and just grabbed any plants they had just to start the tank off. I will be surfing the SNS a whole lot in the next few weeks!!

I would take a pic for you guys and gals but it's pretty embarrasing to look at right now.

I am still pretty happy right now though!! Back home and the tank is running!!

OMG, I'm so glad you, your wife, and your dog are all ok! I was looking at your pictures almost crying. That was terrible.

I'm also glad to hear you got your tank back up and running! Can't wait to see pictures

Thanks! Yeah, it was probably the worst thing I have lived through yet... I should say, the worst thing that we have lived through... When all is said and done, we are all alive and we have a brand new home!

I am happy to be back! Back home and back on TPT!

Here is a quick video update after trimming and during a water change. I'll have to post some pics when it went nuts and some good ones too.

I have been growing and selling plants from this tank to get it to a place where I can actually do a good scape. I think form all of my tanks, I'm ready to do a real scape but just not sure which way to go yet...
