My 72 Gallon Aquarium

Postby Marconis » Sun Feb 10, 2008 7:13 pm

Here it is, day 2 of cycling. Personally, I really like the scape. However, the filters are such an eyesore, especially since it has huge pre-filters on..but hey I don't want my filters getting damaged. Other than that, what do you think?

Thanks for the kind comments.

All I know so far are yellow labs, not sure what else currently.

Nice tank. You might see if you can find some paint and paint the tubing black. I know a few people who have done that.

It looks really nice so far. I can understand you not wanting to kill your filters after reading all your troubles with filters.

Very Nice!

Do you have a blue background or did you paint the tank blue?

I think it looks great! The rocks are placed in a great 'pattern'.
As someone else stated, do you know what your going to put in it?!
