    Damn! That's going to be insane! Great build so far Nick!

    It reminds me of the tank built into the wall as you walk into the ADA gallery in Japan.

    Thanks Rayno I am not sure what I am doing wrong when I upload pics......

    The dimensions are 2800x720x720.

    I will keep this updated as I go along, just planning my lights at the moment, not sure yet what I will use, maybe leds just doing some more research on them.

    The filter is a 200L sump which will be packed with German blau sponge and siporax, also will have a fluidized bed filter and UV light.

    This is the first time I am posting a thread on my Aquariums so bear with me?

    Its is going to be planted and at the moment there will be a large characins (Chelceus) medium size polypterus some Ctenopoma Acutirostre.

    I have been testing out polypterus with the plants and its totally cool. I love monster fish and planted tanks.

    After uploading your photo to photobucket, click the link in box next to "Direct" on the right, under "Links to share this photo". You'll see it showing in yellow - [glow=yellow,2,300]Copied[/glow]. Come back onto APSA and paste that link in the message box. Highlight the link you just pasted and click the little "Insert Image (Mona Lisa) tab under "B" (Bold). It'll ad the image tags for you. Don't use the image tagged link photobucket provides, use the direct link and follow instructions above. We'll hopefully have the new "something something" implemented, that'll make uploading pics to APSA allot easier. :)
