hi all, im starting the journal for my 55 gallon early. partly due to me having no patience
and partly due to the fact that i need lots of help. i got this used tank for pretty cheap but the rims are in cruddy condition so i am planning to remove at least the top one, maybe bottom too?
I got the tank moved to the backyard at my parents house for leak-testing today ( didn't want to do this in my apartment living room!) filled it up and dropped in my driftwood for soaking. no leaks so far!
I'm going to leave it full a couple weeks mainly to let my driftwood sink. Then onto removing the rim! ill of course be updating pictures all along the way. im going from a ten gallon to this so i'll have lots of questions im sure
I haven't decided on eurobracing or one wide center brace yet...
if i take the driftwood out and it dries, will i have to soak it again? this seems like a stupid question but im not sure..
sooo... here it is ugly rims and all
and my pumpkin i also carved today haha.
I would appreciate any suggestions for cost-effective filtration. (around 100$?) if i do the eurobracing im definitely going to have to go canister, but im not objective to HOB filters either. i was looking at the rena xp2.
