    Yay! A new tank!

    As some of you know, it all started here: https://www.bcaquaria.com/forum/equip...edition-22189/

    The tank isn't up and running yet, but soon. And I thought I'd start a journal now to document the early days.

    First step, done this week: painted the back (black). That's what I've done with all my tanks in recent years, and it's still what I like best. So I'm sticking with it. Finished today.

    Before, w/o and w/ stand light:





    After, w/o and w/ stand light:





    More to come. Thanks for looking.

    Looking good Franck, gonna second what Ming said earlier.But taking your time to gather all the pieces you need and brainstorm a few layout ideas is alright too.Adding up the costs on paper helped me as well,and made my decision to stay on budget a huge plus.So easy to go spending all your money and then have empty pockets after which isnt a good feeling either.Keep updating looking forward to this!

    Thanks guys. Yes, there's the money aspect for sure, but also I actually like to take my time thinking about possible options, for both fauna/flora and scape. To me it's definitely part of the fun. And in this particular case, I really needed the time because I've been flip-flopping quite a bit recently between a couple of options. In fact I'm sure that I'll flip-flop again.

    Thanks Zee.

    And by the way, I realise now that I should clarify something I wrote in my previous post above: no, Shelley, neither option that I've been contemplating for this tank involves wild discus!

    Went to pick up some slate from Northwest landscaping last Saturday. A big thank you to Gary for meeting me there and checking that it was tank safe.

    And made a trip to J&L tonight...

    I know this is old news because of the roll back, but I missed it somehow. I gotta get me some of those Hamilton strips. Dang, I didn't know you were looking for a 425, I might have one or two lying around.
