I finally picked this beautiful tank. I had purchased a few months ago. Tony was so kind to hold on to it for me until my wedding was over. It a 110 acrylic with a beautiful stand. It will be set up in a few weeks. I need to work on my fish\ living room and move a few tanks around. The tank a black background which I don't really like and will be removing it soon. I will be running 3 filters on it. ehiem 2080 and a 2029 wet dry filter and a rena xp4 but i will set up a wet dry sump for it in the near future.

The tank looks very nice. It should make a good Discus tank.

If you can find a canopy that matches the stand, the whole setup will look even nicer, just like a show tank.

Nice looking tank Dave! :D Glad it went to a good home. If I recall correctly though, the tank volume is 135g. It looks so weird in someone elses house.....my wife thanks you though.

nice tank, you may have to polish it before filling it to give it that brand new look!

Thanks Dean. I wish i can add more discus but I'm at my limit for now.Plus I'm saving for a few nice wilds from Oliver.

Wow...a lot of filtration. I thought the discus crowd was against too much flow?
My Discus don't sea, to mind the flow .

Love the flow Gary - LOVE THE FLOW!! But that's just me. We all seem to be quite different on our ideas of filtration.

By the way, great tank, Dave :)
Thanks Shelly When it's up and running you can come by and check it out..

Cool, and yes, Dave, that's a very nice setup. Will it have a canopy or will you run open top with suspended lights? That would be very cool.
I'm not going to put a canopy for now and. I'm gnot sure what i'm going to use for light at the moment..

Thanks again for the tank . When i calculated the measurements is came up to 112 gallons it does not matter. I still love it.I have removed the black background.
very nice tank, the 3 blue discus will go there, right?
Yup the 3 big guys i got from you will be in there in a few weeks.

nice tank, you may have to polish it before filling it to give it that brand new look!
Thanks I will.

Yes, discus LOVE the strong flow + tight crowd !!!!!

Nice piece Dave. You and I have the same thought. I got a stump from April (smaller of course since my tank is going to be a cube) 3 weeks ago and will be running barebottomed for a while with a few epiphytes up top in the beginning. She does have a lot of nice pieces, which reminds me that I still need to get a few branches from her to finish off the scape. You going to soak that in a tub for a while first?

Hi Dave. How does that stump sit upside down? That's what I'm looking for - kind of like how Kevin has his tank set up with the bulk of the wood at the top tapering down to the roots at the bottom.

it bottom heavy . If you use small branches you can hang them in to the tank. I'm going to get a few small branches and will be doing the same thing like Kevin. His tanks are great. The angels are even better in person. i'm going to start a altum tank soon.. Just like his..
