CryptKeeper54's 44 pentagon cichlid tank

Got a renewed interest in aquriums again. Thought I would try making a cichlid tank.

Born date: 4/14/12

Had this tak decommisioned in 2004. Clean up time:

Adding lighting grid (from lowe's), sand, concrete blocks, ABS pipes and rocks (lace rock and unidentifed rock):

Amazon delivered my Fluval 306 on 4/18. Great build quality and good price. Happy with my purchase. Time to add plants (java fern and anubias bateri). In retrospect, should have added more rocks in corner to lift bateri, hard to see in jungle of fern:

Was skeptical about this LED light but it is fantastic looking to me.... I used to run MH lights over this tank in 2004 and the LED light gives me the same shimmering effect that I love.
