Had another thread running for this project but it's quite old now so I figured I may aswel kick up a new one. This concept was something I had dreamt about since I was maybe 8 or 9 years old, so finally having it come together is really something special for me. Add to that the fact that prior to this tank my biggest aquarium setup was a 65L two foot tank, and I think you can imagine how excited I am about this. Keeping (and raising) discus is a challenge I'm really looking forward to as well, and hopefully giving some breeding a shot further down the line. Anyway, I'll start with the earliest photos and fill in the blanks up until now. April 2014: very veerryyy early planning stages. A couple concept sketches and a scaled plan for the builders to work off. A stray photo of my general inspiration for the overall look. (white sand, large driftwood, big swords, blue discus, happy days) Fast forward a few months and things are looking a little more advanced. Here's another tank with similar elements, regarding the fish, unusually tall dimensions and aquascaping. Then received my first look at the tank... Funny story I've been told about the installation of the tank before I throw those photos up. I was at school while it happened and only heard through one of the builders but turns out the 6.5x2x80cm high 12mm glass tank was carried almost 25m and installed by four guys, one of which threw up afterwards because of the weight... makes me glad I wasn't there And finally the three foot sump. Don't know when the next update will come unfortunately, for those of you who follow my pond thread you'll know that the chances I get to put time into my projects are few and far between while I finish year 12. Anyway, hopefully the photo overload wasn't too much to handle. Would love to hear some feedback and any advice would be much appreciated because as I've said this calibre setup is mor than just a little unfamiliar to me. Cheers.
