Hello guys, I'm Jeremy, a portrait photographer from Boise, Idaho. I've been recently thrust into the land of aquariums. My wife is a big fish nerd due to sharing it her whole life with her father. Well recently we inherited a 180 gallon fish tank from her father before he passed, and it was her big dream to get the thing put on display. Before that it sat unwrapped for 20 years. So we finally got it up this 4th of July weekend. I know you guys only do Saltwater here, but it was a Freshwater tank. We have tons of gear for Saltwater, but for an initial setup, we wanted to at least get it up with some fish. As a newcomer, I thought I would share what we were able to do! Here is the initial setup. We really didn't have the money or ability to make a fancy wooden stand, so we had to go the cinder block route. We spent 24 hours running two strong canister filters pushing nearly 1000gph through the tank before we introduced the fish. This is what we managed to complete the tanks look (No fish in yet, just final touches) Finally we were able to put our fish in. We don't have a huge selection yet, but we're working on it, we have: 3 Bala Sharks 1 Redtail Shark 3 Tiger Barbs 2 Tin Foil Barbs 2 Siamese Algae Eaters 1 Bristlenose Pleco Here is the tank with all our fish in it: So that's our start to our big tank. I'm not sure how we did, or if we did something wrong, but I hope you guys can make some suggestions. Oh and also hello from Boise!
