Anthony's 37 Gallon

This is my tank about a month ago. Sorry for the way the picture looks. My tank is growing in nicely, and I will post new pics ASAP. What do you think of it now? Are there any tips for taking pictures of the tanks? What determine file size of pics. This is the only one that would fit, and is not one of the better ones?

No, it is a six inch longer version of the 30 gallon Oceanic cube. Can't wait to post new pics.

Yeah it is, I have removed it and put it in a 5 gallon where only part of it is submerged. I have had it for almost 6 weeks, no growth but it still doing fine.

I think that's a really nice sized tank. I would have gotten the same one myself if it weren't for how expensive Oceanic stuff is. As you can see from my signature, I've basically got the same thing except three inches taller.

What kind of lighting and filtration do you use on it?

Yeah it was expensive, I liked the look, and it was a Christmas present(tank with light $130, maple stand $125. Was kinda upset though to later find a 40g breeder, and a 50g, I really like those tanks. One of those will definitely be the next tank I get. They look much easier to aquascape than the cube style tanks.

I am looking forward to setting up a 37G this fall to start growing out and propagating sword plants. The footprint is exactly like a 20 Long, but it is 24" high.

A feeble attempt at dissolving co2(hehe). Now I have a Hagen Ladder.
