It has been awhile since I have posted on this site. Life has been busy and I lost the passion for my hobbies for a while But it has slowly come back. I'll be posting a some pictures later on in the day. I had wanted to have this tank set up a year ago but things didn't work out. I finally got around to finish the stand to where it's decent and functional . The dimension of the tank are 84"x 24"x24" its acrylic . I'm running a 108 gallon sump for the filter. I'm using k1 media and poret foam. I'm want to do a black water set up for my Altums but I have not figured out how I want to do it. There will be no plants in the tank just sand and wood. I want with a dark blue back ground . I turned out a lot better than expected . The fish will be transfer over some time this week and I''l post more picture when it fully done.

Here are a few pictures of the tank



Here are a few pictures of the fish that will be going in the tank.

Thanks Gordon . I can't wait to see your Salt water set up done.

Looking good Dave :)
Thanks
Sweet tank!!!
Thanks.
110% jealous!
Yes it is . I waited 2 years for the old owner to sell and I had to wait another year to get it up and running .
Nice footprint on that tank Dave.
I can't wait too. I'm going to have to stop by for a few feeder fish ( cardinals & rummy )

Cant wait till you set it up. Beautiful fish.

Wow, looks beautiful! I am amazed at how big those angels look. What type are they? (pardon my ignorance, I'm afraid I am not that knowledgeable about angelfish types).

The full tank shot is coming. I'm just waiting for the tank to clear up and the wood to sink
I'd love to see some full tank shots with the wood/sand in place... I am jealous!
Thanks

The large ones are Wild Santa Isabellas and the rest are Wild altums.

So here is a full tank shot . It's still cloudy but It's getting better plus the stump is almost water logged .


I have had the large Altum for over a year now when I got it. It was the same size as the little one beside it.


2 males getting a little restless.


My blue face browns laid eggs again. They will be moved to their own tank in a few days
