Photo Caption:45gal tall, sandstone rock structure, crushed granite substrate($10 for 80 pounds at landscape supply), Undergravel jets for good water movement. Way too many fish in tank, overrun w/baby Convicts! I have a massive amount of filtration so my PH, Ammonia levels etc. are always good. If anybody can tell me what the big fish at the left side of the tank is, i'd really like any opinions!
Description: 45 gal. tall. Homemade hood w/ moonlights. Hot Magnum, Magnum 350 and bio-wheel filters. Can't have too much filtration.
Advice: Get as large a tank as you can afford because you'll just end up getting a bigger one later. I get alot of my equipment (filters, air pumps etc.) from garage sales. I paid less than $30.00 for my filters! Also, things like decorative rock and substrate can be purchased at landscape supply for very cheap. I also saved quite a bit of cash by making my stand and hood myself.
