    Hi !!
    You're making me feel bad... I should have told about it, but I haven't started this tank yet :p

    Let me explain the best I can :)
    Last time I've updated this thread I was expecting to start it real soon.. But outside of my aquarist hobby, there was some kind of an opportunity for me to move along with my girlfriend ( member: CLT) in an apartment !
    At this time my answer was only a maybe, because I was thinking the pros and cons etc...
    So I've let the tank sleeping with an unsure hardscape and an unfinished hardware setup ;)

    ~waiting for a new spark of time to ignite the beauty of planted tank~ okay..... I'm being funny ^^ haha!
    So well, since the last two months I've decided to finally move to the apartment with my girlfriend and two other people.

    So its a matter of week till you finally see water getting into the tank..

    PS: I was also really busy :p

    I'm happy to be back here

    Not so proud of the reflection of the glass but still, you can see the tank ...

    Unfortunately I may have thrown the green inflow to the garbage some month ago... So for now its an extra length of tubing as inflow..

    I think you could do a Stonehenge look since most of your rocks are kind of rectangular, but I'm a noob so really have no idea what I'm talking about lol

    Hi! I posted a picture of the tank earlier but it didn't showed the new inflow well so here's some of the inflow when it was still in the box :) [​IMG][​IMG]
    (phone pictures again haha :oops: :p )

    Oh and Keith for the updates I think we won't do anything in the tank until me and Ohly get some free time to go shopping :cool: :p I think it'll still run like it is right now for a couple weeks.... :confused: :(

    But we'll keep you updated :)

    Oh and any idea for fishes to start the tank? I'm a little scared of transferring my galaxy's in the thank (when the plants will be in it) to cycle it... :rolleyes:

    Thank you! :)

    I only do a fishless Cycle now I use Seachem Stability as per direction it never fails (Providing you follow their instructions and do not add any thing else, once you start that it could take 3-4 times longer plus problems on the way.)

    Hi Clt, Ohly, That is one cool looking intake :rolleyes: Will you use a lily pipe for the out flow ?? Ohly did you ever finish the Diy lily pipe?? I know you busted one after all your hard work :cry::cry: Wondered if you done another one.
    I would do a fishless cycle ;)Add in the bottle bacteria as Keith said per the instruction :) Wait 5--6 weeks :whistle::whistle: Then add your fish shrimp
    Happy days :D

    The out flow that we have right now is the one that Ohly broke haha :p I think we'll buy another one when we'll have time and money... ( it'll probably be before the planting is done (according to me at least haha ))

    And I like the idea of cycling the tank without fish :) it sure will take a bit more time but it doesn't really bother me haha :)

    Thanks for the suggestions :D

    Have a good day
