The tanks.
Petco $1/g sale 55g tanks .
With the stand going in the living room with the 75g set I decided to match the backgrounds at least.

Mirror backed the tanks. The clear RTV goes parallel on the back of the tank sealant.

Nothing broken this time
On the 75g tanks I had the glass cut too close to size and popped one on the frame work.
Leaving an 1/8" gap along the bottom gave me breathing room on the frame and is hidden by the substrate.

The upper tank is 4 bags of Eco-Complete and 107 root tabs starting out. (1 every 3" approx.) SSTop.

The lower tank SSDirt is a modified dirt tank (hi Sara)
It deserves it's own post because how it filled is change #2 to da plan.
