Re: New 90 gallon setup

Purigen seems like something I need to look into. I hope to be at the meeting in Feb so hopefully I will get some ideas. Don't think I will plumb the tank although I was thinking of plumbing a hose bib under the bathroom sink to run a hose from. That said, plumbing the tank would make a sump more us...

Re: No tank yet but a stand!

Theres actually another door on the other side as well although its a bit useless in its current location. Hiding the fake wood trim at the bottom of the tank was a must. Still thinking if I want to do a canopy for the top. Basically the thing is overbuilt. You could probably park a truck on it. It ...

Re: No tank yet but a stand!

Thanks Nick. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. That said there is some design aspects I would change if I were doing it again.

Re: New 90 gallon setup

So many options now... I looked at the different substrates and they look nice but I'm not sure I should change my mind. The ADA Aquasoil would be my first choice for performance, price and Amazon availability but I read a lot about it breaking down after a while. My plan for this tank is mostly sho...

Re: New 90 gallon setup

This all sounds like a good project, Tim! I run all high-tech/high-light tanks myself, but I think I can still help with a few recommendations: High-tech/high-light sounds great but to me but it also sounds like more pieces that can break and more maintenance/pruning. Not sure that I can dedicate t...

New 90 gallon setup

My last planted tank, or any tank for that matter, was a 30 gallon that was set up in 2003. Needless ...
