GONE LIVE!! - Mark's 55 gal Tank Journal, (Dissolved) (NO 56K)


It is 2:30pm EST here in Ohio and I am counting down the hours till I get home so I can start on my 55 gal planted tank. Over New Year's break, I tore down my 55 gal artificial tank to begin to get ready to turn it into a planted tank. I ordered my lighting, eco-complete and a few other items and they arrived today as did my plants. I will be starting in on the tank around 6:00 tonight and will post live updates of my progress as well as taking suggestions along the way. I will be a long but enjoyable evening so stay tuned. I will post pics off the tear down later.

Just stop what you're doing and start working on the tank, NOW!

Nobody will notice, just say you have to go to the bathroom and never go back.

I can't wait to see things get started.

On a side note, you spelled Journal wrong. You spelled it journel.
