90G Jungle Tank ...


I wanted to start this journal to document my 90G jungle tank. I'm currently in the planning stages, although I have already started construction on the fish room in the basement that will house all of the equipment.

I've also narrowed down the equipment list and started looking for deals. Here's my list so far:




I got an good deal on the Mag 12 pump ($100 brand new) so that's already bought and an amazing deal on the ProFlex Model 3 sump ($140 new).

I've also got some rocks (some are from a previous tank from a few years ago, others I bought recently).



The rocks on the left are dragon stone and the gray rocks are seiryu stones. I'm thinking of going with the seiryu stones and possibly getting a few more.

Here's the driftwood I was going to get from Tom Barr so I could do a trunk with roots effect.



However there was a bit of a mix up and I believe here's the pieces I'll be getting instead (I'll know for sure next week when I'm back in town to actually check what arrived).




Well that's all I got so far. Feel free to provide feedback or suggestions and ask questions. I'll post updates as I make progress on getting this tank up and ruining.

Thanks,
Harry

Did a bit more work in the fish room today. It's going under the stairs. There will be just enough room for a 30" cabinet, water change container (hopefully 55G drum) and a small sink.



First thing that needs to be done is to fix some of the bad work the builder did in supporting the stairs. At the same time I'll be making everything square and plumb.

Thanks,
Harry

A few more details ...

I'm planning on going with Tom Barr's non CO2 method as outlined on his site (and probably several other places). I had great success with it in the past so why mess with a good thing.

Here's a picture of my 55G tank that I used to have about 6 or 7 years ago. It used Tom's method and I'm hoping to reproduce this again just on a larger scale.



On the left side the tank had a trunk with some roots. I'm hoping to go with something similar again. The right side in the new tank will be some sort of seiryu rock arrangement.

Here's a picture of the 55G when it was first setup. It's easier to see the trunk and roots in this picture.



That's all for now,
Harry
