100g Aussie 'bow build


I'm in the final stages of assembling my 100 gallon Australian Rainbowfish tank. Needless to say, it will be a planted tank. I had this tank running as a planted tank about 10 years ago but left the hobby...but I'm back in!

It's a drilled Acrylic tank that will incorp the following(most of which is in the pics)

Current Satellite plus pro lighting
Universalrocks 3d background
Jebao DC3000 variable speed pump
10lb Co2 bottle with soon to arrive GLA regulator
Co2 reactor - not tested yet
Soon to arrive Tom Barr wood
Eco-complete substrate - six bags to start
30 gallon sump using filter sock filter and a BRS gate valve
Aqueon 250 pro heater

As soon as the wood and regulator arrives I will fill and test.

After all tested I will stock with Rainbowfish only and thinking about planting with just one type of plant like Java fern...?

I'll post more as it progresses.

Trying to reattach photos so they are not sideways.

FYI - the universalrocks background is even more real in appearance and feel than I would have expected.

Don't know how they straighten them out but lots of phone pictures come out that way.
Just for laughs take the next pictures with the phone held sideways to see if that changes anything.

Got the wood today. I simply put it in the tank without thinking about it and think it will look great once arranged and planted.
