120 gallon highlight project with the Works!

Here's my most current project. 120 gallon highlight tank. Outer Orbit HQI/Compact Fluorescent/Lunar Fixture -560 watt: 2-150 watt HQI; 2-130 watt cf. Amazonia soil and filter sand. Dual Eheim canister filters (2026, 2126), ADA Lily pipes, pressurizes co2 (10 lb bottle), Auto dosing using peristalic pumps, plant species will be listed shortly...

This tank is weird in that you can view it from 3 sides. Makes planting pretty fun.
















I just need to add a few more plants and clean up the stray Amazonia soil. I also am waiting for some manzanita wood to show up
Ottos and cherry shrimp are in there already. planting list to come.

I will post some more pictures in the coming weeks.

Cheers, Whitepine

Looking nice. The 24" depth gives you a lot of room, don't it?

How deep is that aquasoil?

Nice plant list!

I like your approach of stocking it heavily from the start rather than letting things fill in the empty space.

Here's a new picture.



I have been fighting co2 issues with this tank... It's kind of hard to get it right when you have to ride the ferry back and forth to work on this tank. I think I finally have it set up right.

Looks good, a very unique tank I'd love to see a shot of it from the small side. To me the left side seems a bit too busy though in contrast with the right (not sure if you're planning to thin the plant list on that side) :P

Yes! I snuggle with rats!

Here you go...



This is the first side of the tank you see as you come in the office.

I would trim the side closest to the wall.



So this is at your office or something?
