sadchevy Good looking tanks guys and gals!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep them coming. Sometime this spring/early summer, I should have my 300 gallon contraption put together(75/150/75). Still haven't figured a way to connect them into a single 300 gallon, still open for suggestions.

chayos00 Here's my 6 foot 125g tank with a 55g sump. I built this stand and canopy as well, granted it was a 3 year project, but it's finally done and running! This pic was taken right after my delivery of fish from LiveAquaria.com.

Thanks! It was pretty easy. If I did it again, I'd make the legs for the beamswork LED a lot longer, the whole 24" of the stand, so I could slide it back and forth. The 48" light is easy enough to just slide to the right and out of the way when I climb in there to do things.


Give it a year and it will be a forest


EDIT:

Actually, now that you've mentioned it, I am going to rebuild my lighting this weekend. I'll make the track for the beasmwork the width of the tank and RAISE the finnex a couple inches since it is an accent light only. Then the beamswork can be slid all over to work inside and around the tank without hitting the finnex.


You've done me a great service!

PEdwards Those were water baths to house the buckets used in my Masters research. We needed to make sure the Texas summer sun didn't boil the plants alive in their buckets.

max h A lot of nice tanks in the post. Here's mine, it's an old Oceanic 110g that's a five footer. The first picture is from the beginning of the month after getting everything transferred over. The other picture is from today, I didn't realize how much the plants had grown in a couple of weeks.

Cucumber Club Member This is my first planted tank and first tank since I was about ten. I picked up a used 125g and cleaned it up. I found a couple of pieces of driftwood at some local falls and used some Ohko stone. I recently gained an interest in houseplants and that led me to aquatics. The fish are just a bonus!

I'm using a 525gph canister filter, 300W heater and am using a 2' 96w T5 light I already had. I will be looking at adding more light.

sadchevy Seems it's time to bring this thread back to the top. I've been seeing more large tanks showing up in the threads lately. I'll have to take some new pictures of mine here soon. I'm currently working on setting up a 12 foot long display that consists of 2-75g and a 150g tall tank. I'm looking at ways to combine the tanks into one 300 gallon tank. Lots of ideas bouncing around in my head on how to do it but nothing that has stuck just yet.
Hopefully it will look like this when done.
