It took me 12 hours from start to finish and I think everything on my body hurts. I'm going today and get about 100 feeder goldfish to help the cycle I hope y'all enjoy the pics.

Really nice, what about plants, they will look nice, although you have to control them because believe me they get out of control if you don't

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I'm thinking about doing some water lilly. I'm sure I will do some minor tweaks to it over the next month or so.

If you look in the last picture to right in the mess bag is a 1200gph pump that pumps into the canister that is rated at 1200gph that also has a UV light built in it from there it goes into the waterfall fiter that is rated at 1200gph also and the pump in the center that is doing the water feature has a filter built in rated at 500gph but I'm sure as I ad larger fish I will ad some more if needed. And the goldfish I will keep them in there but as I add larger fish if it looks like it may be a stocking issue I will bring some of them back to the LFS for store credit
