70g 4ft African display


hey guys and girls its aussie here again
ive recently been doing some trading here and there and decided that im not going marine just yet
the room i have gets really hot and i dont want to fork out lots for a chiller,skimmer and leds ect.. its just not the right time financially.
so what i do have is just about every thing to start up an african tank Click here to enlarge that way its not going to bust the bank to much and they can handle a bit of heat during this summer. so heres a breakdown on what equipment this setup is containing

TANK - aquaone aquagrande 120, 4ft 70 gallon curved glass corners
CABINET - Custom made by myself
FILTRATION - hagen Fluval fx 5
LIGHTING - hagen glo twin t5 reflective unit, 54w powerglo 18,000 k
SUBSTRATE - 60kgs micro crushed coral sand + 20kgs seachem pearly shore's
HARDSCAPE - 110kgs A-grade Texas Holey Rock - life like Plastic plants

90kgs of texas rock in just those 3 peices, thanks craig for the awesome deal on it and the fx5


fluval fx-5 installed with natural pumice stone for the bio media


hagen glo t5 reflector with 18k powerglo

T&S View

Still alot more work on the hardscape like adding a few smaller pieces of texas rock to fill it out and adding some life-like silk plants
getting the lids cut today and ordered a fluval surface skimmer too :-)
