More Info

Country: Canada
Description: This 120 Gal tank took over 8 months to build. The vast majority is scratch built. Lots of custom concrete work inside, dozens of tunnels, interconnected caves, driftwood, etc. Custom under gravel/hidden plumbing based on a Fluval 404 and Fluval 204 (many caves have water output, all tank currents were specifically designed). It has a completely automatic (x10) lighting system (flourecent, incandescent, blue night/LED) that automates the lighting process (for example, it takes the incandescent lights 10 minutes to fade on in the morning as not to startle the balas, once they are on, the fluorescent kicks in, and incandescent go off. reverse at night, but with blue night lighting). Thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours... But I think I have the happiest fish on the block!
Advice: uhh. have fun?

About Yourself: What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh. ok, maybe that's a more auditory joke.. never mind.

COMMENTS

Nice tank, I can tell you worked hard. I gave you a 7, but that score don't reflect what everyone rates, because #1 tank is just over a 6 which seems should be just above average. #1should be a9+ anyway, keep on fishin' rmcgill37 fish avatar
