I went with 2 brand new AC70 filters. I just feel safer that way knowing there's plenty of filtration/circulation. I'm pretty sure I could get by with the combination of an AC110 and a powerhead, but...

Nice! Yeah I think I might pick up this light. I wanted to try something like the Finnex Planted Plus, but I think I would need two fixtures for something like that. And I don't really feel like...

Pool Filter Sand

I am really curious to try pool filter sand. I have heard so many good things about it. I can get a bag of HTH pool filter sand here for 12 bucks for a 50LB bag from my local hardware store.

I do think it looks better than the rest, too! Does it look bad dead in the center though? Should I move it off center?

So a 36 inch fixture wouldn't fit on the 58? The 58 is the same footprint as 65 though. They are both 36x18

Thanks but that's really a lot more than my budget affords, that's why I was looking into beamswork more. The most expensive one I saw so far was 70 dollars.

Beamswork LED for 65 gallon

I would like to purchase a beamswork led fixture for my 65 gallon low-tech setup. I'm not really sure which one to go with. I do know I will probably more than likely need two, but I would at least...

Good start. Could be just me, but I've been seeing a lot of 65 gallon tanks popping up on here recently! That's great because I just picked one up recently as well.

Yeah pretty crazy lol It will be low-tech with mostly low-tech plants. I'm not really entirely sure what kind of scape planned but I would like to try lots of tall background plants.

I did but I haven't gotten anywhere with it because I haven't had the time/money to set it up entirely.

Here's a pic of the 58 though of what I have going on so far.

Aquascaping with tall tanks

I recently picked up a 65 gallon tank which I'm sure as everyone knows, is 36x18x25 and is pretty much a mammoth of a tank.

I haven't had a very tall tank in a long time though and I'm looking for...

The reason why I ask is I did just pick up a brand new Marineland 65 gallon. I do think I will do a leak test though. The only negative thing about that is that is a LOT of water to be wasting.

Leak test

So what do you guys think? Is it always necessary to do a leak test? I can understand when using a previously used tank, but how about a brand new tank that appears to be in perfect shape?

I am somewhat leaning towards the 58. The only thing I miss about the 55 gallon is the length. Other then that, it was a PITA to maintain. That really makes me want a 75, but sadly, we don't have...
