55G Buce&Erio Hi-Tec


Hi everyone, this journal is going to be on the 55 gallon I got for free from a generous TPT member! Thanks again!
I'm planning on doing a buce and erio tank, no more stems or swords!
This is going to be my 6th tank!
So first I took a long 3 hour drive up to PA to pick up the tank and stand, the centerbrace was cracked sadly, but the stand was in really good shape! I decided to give the 55 away to a family friend and let them fix it up, its in good hands. I kept the stand and sanded it down. (My arms still hurt after 3 hours of using that sander)
Here it was at the guys house before I picked it up:

A couple weeks later, after sanding and re-staining:


Waited for all the electronics to come and installed them (except for the BML, gotta save up for that):

Even added some LED strip lights while I was there:


More to come!
All I need is the Tank, the BML light, and the co2 system!

Is that a power strip connected to another power strip?

Bought the 55 from a guy on reddit with the help of some members from tpt!
Did the water test and it looks okay. For now...
