~Green's Resurrection Aquarium Gallery~ 50g Updates 6/20/12 pg.4: Mountain Scape
 
Hello everyone,

Welcome to my Resurrection Aquarium Gallery. Some of you may know I have had 140g and 50g when I started this hobby last year (Summer). Almost a year has gone by, I have learned A LOT. I am talking A LOTTTTTTTT:smile:. The best lesson learned in the beginning of this year (2012), where every single tank that I have crumbling down. My 140g was ok, but I didn't get what I expect it to be. My 10g was dying slowly but surely because of algae issue. To top it all off, my 50g which I was somewhat proud of, were destroyed within hours because of CO2 issue (here is the thread: (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ge...ng-all-my.html).

Yup, that's right. I was very very very very close to quit this hobby. I basically didn't really care for a while. However, inside me will never quit. I know that "giving up" is not in my dictionary. I got knocked down, but I didn't get knocked out.

This is why I decided instead of quitting to have 0 tank, I would have actually dedicated a room just for aquarium/fish tanks only. This will be my Resurrection Aquarium Gallery. From 0 tank, this fills up to 6 tanks (140g, 2x 50g, 30g, 10g, 5g). :smile::smile: I know that I am still learning, but I can tell you this. IT WILL BE EPIC. Not to be cocky or overconfidence, but you will enjoy it as much as I do. Let's get started with the pictures of the room.

Here are some pictures as I am building the smaller tanks around my 140g (She's the big momo) :icon_smil

Hahahahah, yeah I am happy, but they're not done yet. LOL. It was pretty painful to move 5 tanks around to get the best view and functions at the same time. However, I enjoyed it. So look out, I will be rescaping all these and Updates pictures at least tomorrow. Btw, I would start with 140g.:thumbsup::thumbsup: Get ready people. The RESURRECTION is on the way.

Comments, Opinions, Supports, Suggestions, etc are greatly appreciated. :angel:

PS: I will have all the tank journal at this thread only instead of 1 by 1.

Dang, I wish I had a room like that all to myself... Can't wait to see individual FTS's and close ups of each tank(hint hint)! :hihi:

Wow, now that's fantastic :) I wish I had that much room to view all my tanks! That will make maintenance so much more enjoyable. I like the hardscape I your 140, btw. Nice looking setup!

cableguy69846 06-10-2012 04:24 PM

Sweet! :drool:

I think I missed the 50gallon at some point. Not sure how. Maybe that one came and went in my hiatus? Oh well. I am here now. Carry on good sir.:proud:

Thank you. Your wish will come true. It's more enjoyable indeed. As far as the 140 scape.....eeeehhhhhhhhh....It was alright. It was my first scape as I was learning aquascaping with 10g (LOL), and I went ahead and did it. I know the new scape will be much better.:D

Hahahahhahaha, Half, trust me, she won't. The trick is, ....don't get them at once. :icon_evil:icon_evil

haha

Lol, I love how you changed your mind from quitting to diving even deeper! :proud: Says alot for your love of the hobby. Will be looking forward to updates.

I would suggest moving the 140g to the window and the 10g and 30g by the wall, then move the 2 50gs to the other wall.

Sneaky sneaky!

green_valley 06-10-2012 08:27 PM

Thanks knuggs. I am happy that you actually realized that the whole entire thing. It's basically "not quitting". I hope some people will get my point. I love this hobby, and I know my aquascaping is getting better. :D

Thank you so much for your suggestion about 140g. Unfortunately, I don't have the Men Power to move this beast. I don't know if you've had 140 before, but man ohhhh man. Not easy to manuvear, to say the least. Hahhahahahahah. So yeah, at this point, it's too risky for me to move it.

Not sneaky. Just loving the hobby too much, that's my excuse:angel:

knuggs 06-10-2012 08:29 PM

Yeah I could only imagine a 140g. My 75 was enough. I was just kidding anyway :hihi:
