The 6 Foot Plus Club
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone willing to participate in a dedicated thread for 6 foot tanks? It can be used as a showcase, a how-to, general discussion, help type of thread. There seems to be lots of us with big tanks and we are always looking at others or asking questions. A single thread where everyone can find things easily seems like a good idea. Why should the 12L's and such have so much fun? We need our own thread for the big boys and girls;).

Woohoo was thinking of starting this myself, I love seeing other 6 footers for inspiration, but can't track them all down.

Here's my 125

Last week, before the rescape

Tonight, terrible embarrassing pic, lost the good camera :icon_conf needs some time to grow, but here she is at the moment, showing the truth;)

People, people post your pics!!

Nice looking tank rustbucket. It's gonna look good when it fills back in. Come on people, lets see the pics. I post mine and believe me it's nothing compared to most of the tanks on here.
GO BIG or GO HOME!!!!!!

I will change the title of the thread as interest increases. Lets get it started.

This is a great idea for a thread. I can't really contribute yet but 6 footers are definitely in the works. By this time next year I should have my 180g up and running. I did recently score a 125g from craiglist and it should be up and running by winter as a temporary plant growout tank to start my (4)40g (1) 90g tank and that 180g next year.

I'm in. I'm going to be posting a tank journal on my 120g. When I get it up, I'll link it.

I'm already getting some ideas for my tank. This thread is a great idea.

Old Oceanic 72"x18"x24" 135gal that I got off eBay years ago as a reef tank someone had. It stayed in storage for a couple years while I didn't have a place for it. My dream was to have it built into the wall of my log home and what you see when you first walk in the house. It's now been in place for ~6 yrs. Started as ow have pressurized CO2 and dosing EI ferts.

HELP !!!
All was going great (growth-wise) now just 3 weeks ago green beard (aka fuzz) algae popped up and it laughs at every single attempt I've read for correcting the issue. H2O2 & Excel do not work for this stuff.

Tank still looks great from 8-10ft away. I've got a little girl on the way...due in Nov and will not have time to deal with it if I cannot get it balanced by then.

Pics show from April then in June. I need to get the better pics off my camera from July (prior to algae issue).
