Default Re: Another tank! :)

Thanks everyone! I am getting it all set up today. I am about half done and I have been at it almost three hours! I did a pwc and on my 20 gallon and put that water in the new tank. My husband helped me make room for this one and set the stand up for me and leveled it. Our floor is kind of unlevel where it is sitting. Old farm houses are like that sometimes. Should be good to go now.

I know I want a couple of angelfish in it, not sure what else yet. I have to do some checking on compatibility of fish first. I will have plenty of time to decide while the tank is cycling.

They do get expensive. I got the tank, deluxe hood, and a nice oak stand for $150.00, which I didn't think was too bad. Course, that is only half the cost. Everything else you need cost about that too. So yeah, it does get kind of spendy.

Yes, tanks really ARE addicting! I am pretty much out of room now, so not sure if I am going to be able to get that 45 gallon or not. But, ya never know.

I'm still deciding between a 75 and a 90 gallon. I am fortunate enough to live right down the street from the best lfs in the area and can walk there to get my fish and eye up the tanks.

That has to be hard living so close to the lfs! Ohhhhh, the temptation! Our closest one is 50 miles away, which is probably a good thing for me!

Just think of all you could do with a 90 gallon!

So Sharon, will be be seeing a "120 gallon" on your list of tanks soon??

I'm thinking there will be a larger tank...within the next year. Not sure how big yet, though.......

It is difficult living near them I have been going to this store since I was kid and when my hubby and I were looking at houses I was thrilled to find one so close to them!

I'm thrilled for you to have your new tank going, it's always exciting
Cant wait for updates! yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee
