Zachary 908's 120g "A New Beginning" RIP for now...


What's up, folks! My 75g tank (Link in sig) Has been torn down, and I'm in the process of upgrading to a 120g tank!

Here are the tentative specs:

120g Marineland tank (4'x2'x2')
TEK 8x54 watt T5-HO
Aquasoil Amazonia (eight 9 liter bags are on the way! )
Sun sun CF-500 (Only 525GPH, but I will supplement flow with a powerhead)
Sicce Voyager 1 (800GPH)
Pressurized Co2

I'll be purchasing the driftwood tomorrow, and hopefully attaching slate to all of the pieces.

Here's a shot of the tank with a bit of the equipment.

Well, that is a promising start!..... No algae yet! LOL!

I'm sure that it'll be awesome. I like the dimensions on that 120...should give you some more room to play with. Is this going to be a collectoritis tank, or are you planning something specific?

Thanks, guys! This is essentially my dream tank, so I'm pretty happy I was able to get it!

Well.. it could turn into a collectoritis tank, but that isn't the plan. But.. you know how that works.

The plan as far as Flora is very similiar to Tom's tank.. not because I'm a copy cat, but because he has just about all of my favorite plants, ha!

You guys are hilarious.

I'm still waiting on my aquasoil, canister filter, and a few other things that I'm sure I forgot about. I also need to pick up some black paint for the back glass.
