GONE LIVE!! - Mark's 55 gal Tank Journal, (Dissolved) (NO 56K)
It is 2:30pm EST here in Ohio and I am counting down the hours till I get home so I can start on my 55 gal planted tank. Over New Year's break, I tore down my 55 gal artificial tank to begin to get ready to turn it into a planted tank. I ordered my lighting, eco-complete and a few other items and they arrived today as did my plants. I will be starting in on the tank around 6:00 tonight and will post live updates of my progress as well as taking suggestions along the way. I will be a long but enjoyable evening so stay tuned. I will post pics off the tear down later.

Nobody will notice, just say you have to go to the bathroom and never go back.

On a side note, you spelled Journal wrong. You spelled it journel.
