hey dave remember me !!! lol
So its basically it is the same as I've done on my other tanks except adding the plywood? So it would be tank on top of plywood, plywood on top of Styrofoam, then Styrofoam on top of stand? Fx6 was 339 could have gotten it for 310 but I like bigalspets customer service so....

Sorry Frank.. yeah, i use the ply right under the tank. My theory on that is a solid surface under the tank equals even weight distribution. Funny, BA in Canada has FX6 for 349, maybe 369. Pretty rare that we pay less for anything.. cars, food, gas, you name it. And our taxes! Dont get me started.


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

Congrats on the new tank!! Can't wait to see that setup. Capone is gonna love it.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Thanks J. Trying to decide whAt to put in it. I have to provide some cover for the other fish. I really like a few peices of manzanita branches but not sure if its the best thing being that capone is so accident prone. I could always just move the resin caves in that I already have but some of them have a cheesy look to them. Definitly going to have a 1 or 2 large rocks.

What to put in it? MORE CLOWN LOACHES!!! Like 5 more!!! CL's are seriously one of my faves, but w/ the fish I have right now, they probably would wind up dead or on the menu.....shame, this is the longest stretch I haven't had them, but it is what it is. Maybe if I could find another 125GL on the cheap & sneak it down the basement, I could pop the Oscar in there w/ them....but that's a big "IF". :pinch:

But good luck, Frank, post a video when you get it rolling. Just watch out for that Orbic....strong in the Dark Side he is.... :evil:

Well, I don't think he'll bother the CL's too much....I did have them in w/ a Jag I used to have (RIP Butch)....they do have sub-ocular switchblades, & will use them if provoked...Butch learned QUICK not to mess w/ them...but they were a good size, maybe 6".....

Go to hardware store & get PVC pipes.....big enough that Acara & HRP can get in but Oscar can't.....Oscar generally stay at the top, but just in case he decides to pursue they have a retreat......they may turn the tables on Capone anyway, just have to keep an eye....I would put the Acara & HRP in there a day before Capone, may work better.
