In Topic: Delapool's 150 Gallon Tank

No leaks! Took the filter wool out of canister so apart from fine sponge should just be a place for bacteria to live. Setting up CO2 roughly. Then sort out electrical cords tonight but should be a breeze with foot gap between tank and wall. Kind of idly wondered if it would be quicker to paint wall or tape tank background.

Hope to add CO2 and canister filter this weekend. Also fill tank to top and hope nothing goes wrong... I think the tie-down straps popped nails out slightly on one corner of stand but put them back in and seems solid still.

Plants in - bit more action.

Between stretching into tank and laying pavers for air-con, done stuffed a muscle in my back so nothing further. Need some more plants up back right of tank but left room for CO2 and filters.

Sadly lost quite a few fish - pretty much killed me getting inside the house sorted and I think the weather was too hot for them in buckets.

Eventually I’ll shift tank back against wall but thinking of getting some screens to put either side to hide stuff. Also has large window on right side so thinking I can block the sun as well. Lots to do :)

Oh yeah - I learnt that I can’t slide the tank on Lino like on tiles....
