New HERE!! Few pics of my tank!! (Updated Pics 1-28)

hello everybody just found out about this forum and so far i have enjoyed it. wanted to introduce myself and show a few pics!

This is what my tank looked like before it crashed. how i have no clue but it was a sad time



here is my tank now after almost half a year being stored away in the garage. its been up for a few months now.



it is a 80g tank. custom stand and canopy. hope yall enjoy!

it is still a work in progress. still have to hide wires and put the black background back up. also have a eheim filter in the garage i need to hook up so i can take off the emperor.

i ordered the plants off eBay from a seller i should have researched first cause they took a month to get here from malaysia...im sure you know who they might be. im hoping they start growing and i can take the ones out on the gravel and plant them. also have LED light strips i need to hook up and take off the power compact.

Welcome to TPT!

Sorry to hear about your plant order. Sounds like there's a good chance they got seized by customs. At any rate, you can be fairly sure that few if any will be alive at this point if you ever do get them...

You should have much better luck shopping here on the forum in the swap n shop, though.

Wow- they were in the mail that long and are still alive? Amazing!

What are they? Moss?

very nice driftwood, it's very unique and goes very well with the entire look especially the fact that it's all uniform. Looks a bit like a wooden reef in a way.
