Believe me it is well worth the investment. The construction quality is, simply amazing. They know what they're doing...you literally can hardly see any silicone at all. Period. Its almost like the glass panels are just touching each other...I got mine from aquaforestaquarium.com and they know how to SHIP these bad boys, I think I could have jumped on top of the box and not even slightly chipped it!

Wooo Hooo! That's great Ted.
I don't mean about the loss of the bowfront... it's been a beautiful tank, and a great learning tool for you too. But I'm excited about the new tank. You've earned it!
That's gonna look great. And I, for one, can't wait to see the good things you are going to do with it!

After some thought, I have decided to shut down this aquarium. I will be selling off the tank, stand, light, and substrate.
But......I'll be keeping the hardware because - da da da da - I'm getting a 90cm ADA tank! In the next couple weeks, I'll be ordering the goods and building a stand. I've emailed Jeff Senske a few questions, and as soon as he gets back to me, the money hits the table. Keep your eyes on the photo forum. The new tank will be getting a new thread .
It's been 3 years. Thanks to all who offered input and praise.

|Overfloater||I found my manzanita to be similar in behavior. A few pieces sank in a couple of days while the majority took about two weeks. I didn't have any problems with mold or fungi though and the water was stagnant except for a complete change every few days.|

I appreciate the input, everyone. It was Scolley's "redo" that made me think I may need a new thread. But, I now realize his situation was different, as he was fed up with an algae battle and consequently had to wipe his entire tank off the face of TPT . I haven't actually ripped the entire tank down and sanitized it. It was doing fine, and I simply wanted a change. And it isn't officially "completely new". I think this consitutes sticking with the same thread. Regardless, I really appreciate the kinds words, especially those of Steven Chong, offering justification for the creation of a new thread.
'Nuf said on that subject . Back to the tank.
I was stunned to discover that after only 24 hours, many of the manzanita pieces are already negatively buoyant. Everything I've read said this would take weeks. So, as soon as I start to see the tannin leaching slowing down, it'll be game on. I have placed a couple submerged powerheads in the tank to hopefully speed up this process - I think the water flow may also reduce the "slimes" and "molds" that sometimes grow on soaking manzanita. I have no blind to compare it to, so that is just a hunch .

Though, some tanks have no bad points in their life to show. And some tanks are built with the skill to have moments worthy of exultation.
This has been one of the journals I've followed with admiration ever since joining PT more than 2 years ago! I remember admiring it at the very start of my aquascaping, and can't wait to see the newer incarnation that follows. Much worth honoring with a new thread IMO.

hey lynn, i do agree with you. if you have a new setup, and want to start a new thread, please by all means do so, or even if its just a new layout in an old tank... who really cares what everyone else thinks? just be prepared to hear others opinions if you should choose to play the look at my thread game (sorta tiresome, sorta pathetic IMO)...
just seems to me that one of the nicest things about photo journals is to be able to see what has gone on in the history of the tank, the best looks and the worst.... not just the best moment of the tanks life.

|fresh_lynny||but if it is completely new, then it isn't something we've already seen...|
