A craigslist find ... It is the very first tank I have had that is this size. It was a former saltwater tank, and I am still in the process of cleaning it up. Not that it was very dirty, but I am taking my time as I don't want to mess anything up. The whole shebang arrived this Sunday. Did an initial pass with cleanup, and took stock of what needs done. I neglected to take pics of the tank when it first came in, but here are some bits.
The back of the tank itself was covered in dark blue krylon, and there were some calcium deposits inside the tank. Time for Mister Razorblade. Holds water great, but I think I need to reseal it to make sure. Calcium managed to get under the silicone.
The Canopy -- Still needs a dusting / cleaning. Lots of calcium deposits on the reflectors.
The Stand -- All cleaned up and in position.
The initial plan is for this to be a medium light, low tech tank. The canopy as is, however, looks to have far more light than I want. The four bulbs are hooked up to two separate hubs, so we'll see how I can mod it.
Plants I know for certain to be going in there will be some bolbitis and giant anubias I managed to snag from chad320's tank breakdown. I also have some Christmas moss.
I definitely need some manzanita.
