Yep, I plan on an L shaped design. I am thinking 3' wide and 6' on the short side, and 8' on the long side. Thinking 30" for the height. My lfs used cinder blocks with pond liner for their koi ponds, but I want to do something off the ground that includes a waterfall. I also plan on incorporating some built in brackets in the tank for dividers.

Before any of this can happen, I have to get a couple of 100gal plus tanks.

No, I think it was a 125, maybe a 150. It was 18" wide and an odd length 6' 5" according to the seller. My LFS has 125 for 375, but they are out of stock, since they are remodeling. Unless I find a steal soon, I am getting a 125 from them for the Dovii.


I may still get this, it is a 6' tank for sure (150gal I think), and the seller dropped the price to $250 for tank and stand. Just heard back from the seller, and am just working out the details of picking it up. I hope this works out, I will let you know..

I think it is legit, the seller thought it was a 250gal tank, and asked a fair price for that size. I will be quite happy to get this tank at $250. I will let you know how it works out.

Thanks Tehmole,
I really have a long way to go to get this space where I want it to be. I did not expect the weather to be like it is this winter, and the tank/space heaters running all the time are killing my wallet. I hope to add a couple of more tanks pretty soon and start on my indoor pond.

Here are some pics of my indoor fish, not the best, but here they are.

Nice vid and pics. Man those long fin oscars are an odd looking creature for sure. Not sure if I've seen one that size yet. Usually just have seen pics of them when theyre a couple inches.

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