    Talking Changed Tanks!!! Yet again!!!

    haha!!...

    So i have changed my tanks YET again!!! .. Switched my 100 Gallon from a Display unit in my Basement.. to a Inwall Unit 125 Gallons ( 6 foot by 18 inches wide and 22 inches high!!)

    Here is what it use to look like!




    Now with the summer, its too hot to run a canopy.. So i had to run the tank open Format... And doing that it lite up my room way too much.. So i decided to change things around!

    A great weekend JOB!

    Punched a Hole in my wall.. Framed it out and stuck the tank back there on metal stand!


    Here is what it looks like behind the wall!


    The lighting, Now ofcourse this is only Temp.. untill i can get around to buying the correctly Spider reflectors that i want!




    Here is the new tank running, With just the Halides running, the water is stilll murky.. Gotta remeber that i just moved all this stuff over.. 3 hours before taking this picture.


    And then here we go Running the Halides and the Actinics!


    I will post more pictures when i can get more things done! .. lol, I still need to work on my closed loop and then Clean things up.. Lots of Rewiring i need to do.

    Thanks
    Michael.

    It was .. and still is part laundry room

    As for the more rock! .. i agree!!

    What im thinking i will be picking up 100 pounds of dried Baserock ( Lace or feather rock ) what ever most call it!.. and i plan on sticking it into one of those 60 gallon Farm containers.. and plumb it into my tank .. So that in 3-4 months from now.. it will be covered with Coraline and i can do some re aquascaping then.. when it all looks alike.. I hope!

    Excellent upgrade! I think built-ins always looks better and now you can go without a canopy, not have the tank too hot or the room too bright. Good work.

    Shades are up!

    So i went to Walmart and picked up some nice Dark Blue Fabirc.. and made my Curtin for the back of the tank.. This way im keeping the Light in the tank.. and when i install my Exsaust fan it will keep the heat in the canopy to be sucked out!

    Not to mention it keeps the basement from lighting up like a light house !

    I know its Getto.. But hey it works!

    Here it is with the camera flash on.



    And then here it is with the flash off!.. Keeps the light in!


    And from the front!!
    The reflection you see in the glass is the lights from my nano!




    Of course.. not only is this keeping the light in, But its keeping the basement light out, preventing alage growth from cheap old basement lights! ..

    Thanks
