So after upgrading my piranahas 40b to a 180g i have a tank left over doing nothing. So while im still doing my build log for the 180g i figured id do one for the 40b revival.
aquatop 200w heater
ehiem driven foam filter
27L aquasoil amazonia
Beamworkz 36" 6500k light
Mix of neos and neons

Here was my very first start with this tank a little over a year ago.
Here is the last photo of it before i broke it down for moving plants and stuff to the 180g

I made some minor changes and filled the aquarium, some of the "roots" floated up so i had to change the scape lightly, I also didnt like the way the heater and filter showed.
Got my regulator and my post kit from diyco2regulator.com. total cost is ~$180 all said and done. Not bad for a high quality dualstage reg
Lastly the corner of my living room as it stands today
