Not positive on the dimensions right now, will measure it when I get it out of the van. Got it home last night around midnight, so I will be getting it out today and start cleaning it up.Awesome find! What are the dimensions? Have you ever had a sump before? I just got one with my latest craigslist find and it's been working great.
Thanks! Unfortunately, the only fun I have been having has been cleaning it and resealing it. I thought I was going to have it planted and filled today, but while cleaning I found some bad spots in the silicone, causing me to want to re-do the silicone. I know it didn't leak but I figured I'd better be safe then sorry down the road.That is awesome. Have fun with that bad boy
Yes, I just measured it for the dimensions, thanks for the heads up. Never had a chance to get to the calculator, so you are probably right. I was just told over the phone it was a 130. 105 is still cool and should suit my needs just fine, for now!!According to my calculator it's 104.88 gallons, are you sure about the measurement. No matter it's a great deal, are you going to keep the over flow box in the tank or strip it out and go with the no hose drilled bottom look?
Is iy acylic or glass?
I checked out your club, what do you focus on mainly fish, plants, cichlids?
The water level in the sump surges up and down and is gurgling, so I'm still researching on it alot as I am pretty sure thats not normal. I LOVE the idea of having it, it houses all my equipment and things and I like that. It makes for a much cleaner look in the tank. I even tried to set up the stuff in the bottom really nice too, and I'm quite proud of it. It looks MUCH better than when I got it.Sorry about the size thing but it's still a great buy, well the sump is great for good bacteria and well oxygenated water so it should be a nice tank and I can't wait to see what you do with it!
Haha, I would only he was a she, and she was cute. Like you said, though, it was still a really good deal so I'm pleased.That's cool I just recently joined the GWAPA but my first meeting was a lot of fun and I came home with a whole bag of plants for $22, so I really liked it. Plus metting other people with the same interest was also cool, it's kinda like a motorcycle club, cause my wife and kids just walk by and pay no attention.
Well you have to go back and tell the guy he owes you 25 gallons or your going too #$#%%&^!! in his*%&[email protected]!??<>!!
I finally got it all cleaned and set up. Today I put in my dirt and gravel. I just reused the compost I had in the other tank, just mixed some new with it. Then I also reused my gravel from the other tank, just had to add some extra to it. The scape, of course, is done a little differently and I will also be adding some sand to give that a try. Will pick that up tomorrow on my way to the fish store (Like I need a reason to go). I would post some pics of it but the waters really cloudy, so I will wait. It shouldn't be that long, I wouldn't think.I want to try a dirt tank are you going MTS here or undeceided?
Yeah, but with sand it shouldn't be too bad so I can deal with that. Thanks, it had better, after it taking me 3 days to clean it and causing countless blistered fingers! There is a few things in the top that need attention like a little staining and chipping of paint.Look good but it's going to cloud up again when you add more substrate, but you got your float on and ur ready to go, it cleaned up nice!
That is an AWESOME tank! Thanks for sharing that. It is pretty close to what I was going for. I already have the rest of my rocks.The way you have the path with the arch in the back reminded me of this really cool nano tank, see what you think
Thank you, should turn out really nice when it's done.Looks good so far man. Keep it up.:icon_smil
What light is that, it seems pretty bright...I need something like that on my tank.Look good but it's going to cloud up again when you add more substrate, but you got your float on and ur ready to go, it cleaned up nice!
