Mr. Fish The bulkheads used for the outflow and intake?

sumer Great Going.
Hope your slope doesnt flatten. Will you be using Dry start or flooding it on the first day ? Front left area is looking darker, think something about it. Waiting to see it planted.

albirdy wow. those rocks are such a bold move. definitely looking forward to how this turns out. what are your plans with fauna?

theblondskeleton The sloping really makes it work! Funny, though: my wife said the rocks look like Jabba the Hut. You can see his face right at the top of the highest one, haha...This is why I love her - she caught it before I did!

Anyway, that looks excellent. See the shaded areas at the base of the rocks? You might have trouble getting certain plants to grow there (I've had some experience there). Maybe something like lilaeopsis brasiliensis or or l. Mauritania in those areas - grasslike but they don't need high light and fare better when shaded. That will give you a similar feel without the trouble, though they do grow slowly. I saw Amano do this in one of the video workshops on YouTube for the same reasons.

mcqueenesq I agree that it looks great already. Definitely subscribed.

robbowal superb set up.
if you went with a black background in the future it would make the bulkheads vanish.
i love the large rocks, simple but effective.

chiefroastbeef That looks superb as is! Can't wait to see it with plants.

kwheeler91 Looks good, even the huge rocks work for this. I wouldnt worry about the bulkheads they are barley noticable.

FlyingGiraffes Got the rest of my hardware in FINALLY!

Candy with my bulkhead!

Two 99 cent barbs shipped in a giant box. Charged 10 bucks for shipping. Wonder why they can't just send it to me in an envelope. Le sigh.

Bulbs came in finally!

Let there be light!

If you look behind the bulkheads, my plumbing is all ready. Not pictured is a 200w in-line heater. Bulkheads are an eye sore, but not too bad. At least nothing crazy is going on the side of the tank.

I will! Small update right coming after replying to everyone.

Bold is good!

Do you make a killer roast beef?

I am too. On the hunt for the plants I need now. Hopefully I'll get them soon.
