ok, so i had a bit of a productive evening. with a lot of help and a LOT of patience, my sons and i moved my stand into position, i installed the lighting and we got the tank on the stand and leveled it. then i did a quickie vacuum and filled it with water to the level it will be running at so i could test the water feature. i knew there would be tweaks and adjustments and quite a bit of touch up to do. still have to scrape some silicone from the glass and skim about 2 metric tons of excess coco fiber before i can add substrate to the aquarium section. i need to do that soon because my fish and shrimp should be here next week so without further ado, here are the pics.:
Oh yeah, it's a standard size 125 gallon tank. 6 feet long. And 4 little frogs will live in the terrestrial portion.......lol and thank you. I'm thinking plants might go in next weekend. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve before i get to that point.
Thanks renegade. it kind of amazes me as i look through the pics and i see how it progressed. I'm hoping to have it planted by Halloween. I can actually put some plants in now, but i would rather wait.
