I haven't been posting much on the new BCA but today I just had to.

I went out last night and picked up my new 300G acrylic tank from Japhi (Matt). It will probably take me a couple of weeks to get it up and running the way I want but patience is a virtue, just ask Tony1928. It is 8'Lx30"Wx24"T. It is fully sumped with multiple return valves for major current. It will also have a 40W UV sterilizer on it. This will be a great home for all of my Bass.

This means that Judy gets my 250G for Discus and Rays. We will be running it with 2 Eheim 2260's and 3 powerheads. Judy is looking for 2-3 bags of Black Colourquartz sand for her tank.

This means that I will have a 72G Bowfront for sale as well as 2 FX5's.

That is a great size for a tank. I want one similar to that in dimensions. Looking forward to seeing these projects come together.

Due to some issues with my family I was unable to get the Tenecor tank at the time. Then this deal came along and I couldn't resist.

Please update as you go, With Pictures too! :)

I think people are more interested in her 250G Discus tank than my tank.:(

She can't decide if she wants Black 3m Sand for the Rays or if she wants to go Black Eco complete for plants?? Thoughts.

It'll cost you a lot of $$ for EC. I vote for black sand with lots of wood and just epiphytes like java fern and Anubias. I know a donor who can help with those. :D
That is the way I am nudging her. We also have a huge piece of wood in there and she can put small pots and have them hidden behind it.

Sounds like a couple of very nice tanks!
