17 posts in this topic

So I replumb my dads old 55 gallon tank after a mishap before I went to pick it up so I cleaned it had too re do the plumbing resilicon the bulk heads fit my filter lines for one filter and add the inline heater wash rinse wash rinse so now I’m adding the plates for under gravel filter that will be powered by one of two canister filters I’ll be running on this tank now I’m deciding weather or not to run air through the regulator in a 3rd hole drilled in the bottom I mean it’s already there and I have all the stuff so why not right

That should clear up in time . . . or at least after a few water changes.  ;)

Looks great!  What's your plant list?

Happy thanksgiving everyone! It’s been about two weeks since I changed over to my 55 gallon tank and the fish and plants are loving it water has stayed in its perimeters and is crystal clear , I’m doing 10 gallon w/c every couple days about 30 gallons a week, and I had to remove my favorite rock cause my fish were running into it during feeding time and I got nervous they would hurt themselves
