This is a work in progress but decided I should start a journal.
First, I'm not 100% sure this is the I will stay with as I wasn't expecting the dimensions to be as they are. It's 48x18x25 3/8, but the outside edges are 13" with the center being 18". Although I do enjoy the look of a bowfront, it may be harder to aquascape than I was hoping with those outside edges.
I do plan to do a bunch of upgrading but "over time". It's the constraints of budget.
80 Gallon bow front w/ Pine Stand and Canopy
2 x Aqueon 55/75 Hang On Back Filters
1 x Aqueon 300W Heater
1 x Current USA 24" Dual T5HO Fixture
1 x 36" Dual T5 HO Fixture (not sure on brand, getting it out of storage tomorrow)
Substrate is 80lbs of Ecocomplete and 20lbs of Petco Black Sand
Nothing else in the tank yet.
Yes the 1x 24" is currently sitting on top of the canopy. The canopy is not in the best of condition. I'm going to have to build it out but figured I would do that when I work on proper lighting.
