    Amazing tanks! What sizes are they? I'd especially like to know what size the tetra tank is:)

    Thanks :)

    The base of the tank is covered in fake grass matting cut to size :)

    Thank you

    Sizes as I remember
    African tank - 93gal
    Discus/Angel - 80gal
    Sev - 55gal
    Goldies - 50gal
    Tetras - 40gal
    Betta - 23gal

    Just a note: I actually did try to multiquote and it wouldn't allow me to, the page just sat the hanging!

    A 40 tall I assume for the tetras? Were you able to buy a fake rock wall for the background or did you have to make it? Or is that real rock?:shock:

    Is it just fake grass indoor/outdoor carpet or is it the stuff you can buy in the reptile section?

    Anyway, they're all amazing, awe-inspiring and beautiful! I think my jaw would hit the floor if I ever had the chance to walk into your place:)

    Thank you

    I don't know what a 40 tall is sorry. I had the tank custom made :) The fake wall I made :)

    Yes the grass is fake grass matting, not specifically for reptiles or aquariums

    I bought it for the axolotls I have as I am not a fan of bare bottomed tanks, loved it that much I cut some for other tanks

    Loki and his tank (this tank will be going back to grass on the bottom, much easier to maintain than gravel or sand)

    Wow, your tanks are gorgeous! How long did it take for your angel/discus tank and your tetra tanks to grow in? The compositions are very nice!

    Thanks guys

    The discus/angel tank was prettywell immediate, the plants are from a few planted tanks I shut down, same with the tetra tank, advantage of having mature plants. The plants were just trimmed before going into these tanks, so around 2 weeks later it was ready for a trim :)

    Some tank news,

    I have traded 2x 3ft tank for a 4.7ftx2.5ft tank, hopefully it will be delivered this weekend. This will eventually become home to Beastie (the eel). And Beasites tank, once I get a stand, will become home to the goldies (6x2x2)

    Have pretty much sold all the African cichlids now, the goldies will move into there while I shuffle tanks to get a space for the new tank to go....gonna be a pain, but the new tank will be great.

    I look forward to the new 'scape! What kind of an eel is Beastie?

    Update, the seller cannot deliver the tank this weekend unfortunately. So I just have to wait :(

    The African cichlids are now all gone,

    The goldies have all moved into the 90gal for the time being

    I love the look of that fake grass! Can you use any kind or is there a specific brand that's safe?
