Evolution of a 140 gallon long
I've had this tank for about 6 years now. In the original build I planned to house large fish but in the back of my mind had possible future plans for a planted tank. So, the original build was on a budget. Everything besides the pump and heaters found on Craigslist. I splurged on substrate though - 230 pounds of Fluorite gravel, sand, and Eco complete mix. I bought out everything they had at the LFS, lol.
This was about 5 years ago.
After raising Festae, Peacock bass, Snook, Poly's, ect. I changed gears to smaller fish.
Here is about 20 months ago. I was researching and determined to bring Nitrate levels to 0 at this time. That's why I had all the moss in the tank.
