2ft custom tank coming back online

Postby Alasse » Sat Jan 24, 2015 11:27 pm

Had the stand delivered today....had it knocked up cheap, so it is more servicable than display lol.....will try to give it a paint tomorrow.


The tank itself will need a good clean, its been sitting in the shed for nearly 3 yrs, so is dusty at the very least lol. I will have to give it a test fill to see how the DIY background stood up over that time, and also the seals.


The canister that runs on this tank will have all the seals replaced, i'll be taking the media out of the canister that is running on the 2.6ft and putting in this canister. That way the fish can go straight into the tank once its scaped and running.


A photo of the tank when it was last running (naturally there are no plants in it presently lol)
