Getting Ready to upgrade my tank. What do you all think?

Recommended Posts

I got a Aquaclear 110 today for my tank petsmart only had one though :/ so I’m either going to order one off amazon which is really cheaper if I do the free shipping option but will take forever to get here or i can wait on petsmart to get in one. they said they might get one Friday though.

I also ordered a Tetra Whisper 150 Air Pump. That should be good to do whatever I want to do with it lol.

Also got 2 shubunkin goldfish for my pond when it gets warmer :)

I have this airpump on my 40b. It's FABULOUS!! :)

me too ;) it's great

That's really funny! Our tank equipment really matches! :rofl

(That means she won't notice when I switch my rotten, plant eating fish, for her better behaved pair...)

Sounds like you ordered everything that you will need and that your air pump is going to work great. It's also great that your lfs is going to get in another aqua clear 110 filter. You'll get the sale price still unless you ordered it on Amazon. Your tank is going to look great once you get it all set up. Your new fish are lovely. Love their colors. Congrats on everything. It's always exciting purchasing the right stuff for a new tank. Looking forward to seeing the completed work with your Goldie's in it.

I was going to get darker gravel but this was $3 for the whole thing so thought I’d try it out lol. Not sure that I like it though... still thinking about it.

Oh I decided that I am going to pot all of my plants. The big thing in the middle will hold my lily and some other plants. Thinking I will do two on the back wall about half way to each side, and 3 or 4 on each side. Still looking at plants to get though I’m thinking onion plant the lily, dwarf grass, anubias, and maybe a sward or two. What do you all think?

Just to say the shipping on Amazon is very good.. It only took a week to ship me an Aquaclear 50 from the US to the UK.. I-Parcel were fantastic!

Nice Daniel, is it actually wood. I would really like to find a tank that doesn't look like a science experiment and yours is lovely.

Flipsy, are you using a transformer or did you find an Aquaclear that goes both ways?

The base is real wood (yellow pine). The top rim of the tank is just made to look like the same type of wood, and thanks :)

Used a pump motor from a Uk fluval edge which is the same motor pump as the aquaclears but running at 240v
