89 gallon with 3-sided viewing (picture heavy)
I found this 89 gallon, custom built tank on craigslist for $150. Couldn't pass up the chance to give it a go. It has been challenging due to being viewable from three sides. It holds a total of 110 gallons, but the fish actually have 89 gallons to swim in. The rest of the water is flowing through the built in box containing a D.A.S. H39 filter.
The dimensions of the entire tank are 48" x 22" x 50", but the part of the tank that houses the fish is 39" x 22" x 24".
I got a huge piece of bogwood for the tank that adds some fun with open swimming spaces through the wood. I chose to use sand substrate and collected some river rocks. Have not been able to decide if I want to use plants in this tank or not. It has been difficult to find a look I am happy with on all three sides.
For the moment I have some Java Fern resting in the crevices of the bogwood. It doesn't look right to me though. I tried some floating plants too, but even they don't sit right. Here I have included pictures of the stages...hasn't had a lot of changes so far.
I had another thread about fish stocking in this tank, but decided to start a more appropriate Tank Journal Thread here.
