The 100G MTS Journal... May 22 Update

So I bought this used tank. It's 100 gallons and its dimensions are 72"x18"x18". IMO a nice tank for a planted setup.

My first project was to move a closet door/thermostat and wall switch and "create" 6' of wall space.

My equipment list... 2x36" T5HO fixtures with a total of 8x39watt lamps 4-10,000k and 4-6700k
Filters...Fluval 405, Eheim 2028
Pressurized CO2... Sumoregulator

2-300w submersible heaters
Mineralized soil substrate and capped with Pool filter sand

So far I've painted the back of the tank black...I still have to raise the stand 9-10" so the tank sits higher and you don't get a sore back looking at it or working on it.
I also have to mineralize the soil.
The tank will have no canopy.
Plant list...working on it.
