Default Building My 1600 and Basement Setup

Well I am finally near the end stages of my basement aquarium setup. So I thought I would share some of my progress pics and were I am today.

Here's a vid of me walking through my basment

Thanks Everyone It has been an undertaking and hopefully within the next few weeks I will have done the finishing touchs on the basement and be all complete down there.

I built it mainly cause of my rays, I have raised my leo trio since pups 6 years old now and getting quite big also they are now starting to produce pups like crazy, so I figured I needed to make some room for them.

For the 1600 my trio of leos will be going in it and my xingu sp pair for rays for now and I am looking at getting an arowana finally too rally soon, as far as mid dwellers I am not to sure, I dont want something to agressive or something that will likely go after new born ray pups if i am not around soon enough to fetch them out.
Any suggestions would be great.

Great investment especially now that your Leo's are producing. I think putting in some or lots of blk bar SD's would be awesome. Or discus.
