I just firmed up plans to pick up a new tank tomorrow. The description is a 65 gal drilled tall, with sump, stand, and high end light. I have not seen it, but it came out of a doctors office, so I think it might be really nice. I am thinking either salt or Discus, but have to make sure it holds water, and the stand passes muster with the wife. I have no experience with drilled tanks, so I will need a lot of help. The best part of the deal is that it is free! I will be picking it up at 10am and will post some pics asap.

Cool Rob. You don't have to use a drilled tank as intended. Seal it up and run your normal hobs or canisters.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

I am anxious to see how it plays out. I have two spots in the house for a tank like this. Here are some pics. The first is a 36g bow, in the living room. The second is a 20 and 29g in the bedroom. I want to replace the 36 in the living room, but the boss may not like the height of the tank. i like the idea of having it in the bedroom, since I could use a timer and fall asleep watching it, but my late night water changes annoy the crap out of my wife.

I do as well, and I think the new tank will be too tall for the space in the living room, so I will have to consider the other options. The 29/20 set up in the bedroom consist of 1 oscar(moving into a 75), and 1 angel, so it would not be hard to fit the tank there.
