I figured I would put a few pictures on of my tank and my Oscar since I'm still waiting for a call to go get my stand for the new tank.




Fluval LED strip light



Moon light (or whatever they call it lol)

With that background and if you added the right decor you could make people think it was a saltwater grouper. ;)

Looking good, cant wait to see the final results.

Yeah I think it's actually for a salt water tank I didn't even pick it out someone grabbed it for me so I will use it anyway lol the main thing is that my Oscar is in a good sized tank.

Good looking tank and great looking Oscar. Don't know if anyone mentioned it to you yet but, get rid of the glass thermometer I see hanging there. He will smash it, they always do.

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

Pumping my tank down enough to slide it across the floor to put set the new tank up so the move and set up will happen tonight.

Even though everything is goin on around my oscar and he's missing a lot of his water he is still out swimming around and following me by swimming to whatever side of the tank I am closest too lol

Good luck with the new set up. A word of warning moving a tank with water/fish in it puts a lot strain on the glass/the seams & stand. It's much safer to remove the fish and drain the tank down.

X2.....always drain tanks completely empty.....NEVER move tanks w/ any water in them.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
