Momotaro's 37G Aquarium Journal (56K warning)

Here is a photo of my new 37G Oceanic aquarium. It is exactly like my 75G. In fact, the 37G Oceanic is kind of like 1/2 half of a 75G. Just cut the aquarium right down the middle and you have two 37G aquariums.



I have a pretty good idea as to what I want to do.......I'd tell everyone, but then what would be the point of following this journal!

I will tell you that I'll be running an Eheim 2126 Thermofilter, a UV sterilizer and a pressurized CO2 system. Plumbing is going to be pretty tough! The space under the stand is tiny, and I have a lot of equipment to fit under it. However, I feel up to the task!

Mike

Hey Mike! It's about time you're getting started with this! You sure you don't need to plan another quick trip to SFO for a visit to Aqua Forest and Albany Aquarium?

Nice tank Mike, I've always wanted a oceanic 37g ... but i'm afraid their tanks are a bit steep for my budget. Good luck with the tank, looking forward to seeing some progress.

About time we see a pic of what it looks like.

Looking forward to seeing more of another great tank in the making.

Nice going there Mike. I have just purchased the Oceanic 50 to replace a 29 (same width, but deeper - had to fit the space of the 29). Taking the 29 down and setting the 50 up are my Christmas project.

I want that tank!! I have the perfect light fixture and filter and, well, there's no getting around it, I think I need that tank.

Looking forward to seeing your progress... could you keep it slow to delay me from rushing out and spending money?

That is a really nice Cube. Do you find that the 37G is better than the 30G for aquascaping, as in proportions?

I've had my eye on this tank for many moons. Look forward to seeing what you can do with it, Mike. IMO, the hardest part about starting a 2nd tank is making the effort to NOT let it look like tank #1. Way too easy to plant clippings and do it all over again.

SO TRUE!! My 29g I set up (and reluctantly taking down) seemed like a "clone" of my 65!!
