  • 100G Planted Angel Tank

    Alright guys, I gave it a quick wipedown but it needs a vinegar scrub bad! The water levels were kept low in it because it used to house turtles so there is alot of deposits on the glass, the turtles also scratched it up a bit but it won't show up in pictures.

    The glass including the crossbrace is 1/2" thick and it has a good chip taken out of the glass in the back corner, I would say the depression is about 1/8", because of where it is located at the junction of two pieces where it is thicker, it makes me feel better about it. The intake in the overflow is HUGE! I was thinking I would just us it to force feed my canister but now I'm looking at empty 10g's I have and thinking sump. We'll see.

    I won't set this up until well into April at the soonest so right now its just going to sit full of water for a couple weeks and then I'll scrub it with vinegar and begin my scape! The back will be painted black and my wife hates the brown trim so I have to paint that too.

    Pictures below after quick cleanup and one with my dog Sadie as reference Her head is at about 30-32" OR 76-81 cm for our friends across the pond.

                      I know the title says, "Planted Angel Tank" does that mean it will only hold Angels?

                        It'll will house 5 at least if they'll let me get away with it, other than that I'm thinking a large eel and adding females to the congo school.

                            The eel from Jonathan? I bet you already have an idea on how you want it to look I remember when I was planning my big tank and I had it all planned out and then it all went to pot when I started lol

                              No, thats a peacock, I was thinking more like a fire eel for this tank. I have ideas but not on the overall layout, I'm concentrating on dressing up the overflow to not be an ugly black box right now.
