So finally I got it running but still have lighting and wet/dry setup to do. Right now just running on 2 fx5 with drip system so no more water change for me :D

It is in my garage so I don't need a full view window and to save me on glass I go with a 36" window view for this.

Stock.
5 asian aro size 13-19" (red, blue xb, Hbrtg, green)
1 male and 2 female ray, one of the Motoro is pregnant too
1 28" TSN
1 26" Red tail catfish.

Congrats on the new setup looks great.
I would have gotten a larger front window though
Having to press my face up against the glass to see the insides would bug the shit out of me.

Congrats David! You just joined that special big fish tank club in Canada :)

It is now feel like aquarium not fish tank no more :). I will try to be the biggest in BC if possible.

Nice job. I would've gone with a larger viewing window. Its pretty unique though.

I am on a budget and it is not a show tank so 36" diameter window is good enough for me to view a whole tank. 5/8 glass price is ridiculous compare to 1/2.

Actually I don't have too press my face against it as my fish is already doing that for me, beside the smallest fish in there is 13"+ so 3 feet window give me a full view of the tank back panel. It is the 2 front corner that I can't view but I have a large top view though.

Be careful the RTC does not eat your arrows. :)


My smallest aro is 13"+ now and I do feed my tank. If the Cat fish make a move on my aro I will cut open :).

It not as easy as it looks bro. I did make mistake and have spend lots of hours and brain cell on it. It is a success build but I wouldn't say it perfect for me, still not very happy how it turn out but at least I am happy that my fish have room to swim.

I will update my feeding and stock list sometime, as I am so busy and tire work.

Nice job and pretty cool window, it almost gives you the feeling your in a submarine looking out.

Thanks, I am sure my window will be the one and only :). But my tank is still way small compare to you.

Very unique tank. A lot of monsters in there!

I now want to tile the inside of it and still try to come up with idea how to temporary house them. Catching big aro is easy but catch big ray out is not :(.

It is an old setup so now I don't have the TSN or the RTC no more. I would love the pbass but they get spook and die so easy. The HBRTG is my first asian aro and its my favorite aro of all.
