Day 1 of my new 60-gallon setup

My cats recently shattered the glass door on the stand of my old 56-gallon. I couldn't find a new stand that I liked, so I went on the hunt for a new tank and stand. I scored a good deal ($269) on this tank and stand combo at PetSmart and switched everything out yesterday. I was able to reuse my existing equipment: lights, canister filter, CO2, etc. I did add a second heater and will also add another canister filter this week. (Have an Aquaclear HOB, but want a cleaner look.) I like that this tank has a larger viewing area and longer swimming area for the fish and doesn't stick out as far from the wall.

I also reused my substrate and filter media, so I should avoid cycling but will be watching my water parameters very carefully. Everyone seems very happy so far and they are certainly happy to be out of 10-gallon jail (less than 24 hours!!).

I'll post better pics from my big-girl camera when time permits, but iPhone pics only for now.
