    I helped a friend clear out his late mothers home after she passed away unexpectedly. She was into fish keeping and as a result had 4 bags of Eco-Complete Chichlid Sand that he let me take, plus some various other fish/equipment that would be useful/compatible with my other tanks.

    At home, I had 3-20 Gallon Long tanks laying around and decided to use two of them to create side by side Multi tanks.

    The tank is going to be setup as a footboard in my bedroom.

    I'm using a pair of sponge filers for filtration.

    All I need now are some lights, heaters and shells.

    Added the sand and water a yesterday to make sure all was good, it was cloudy at first, but I'm still a few weeks away from fish so I'm not concerned at all.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

    Any help would be appreciated as this is my first attempt at shell dwellers.

    I would take the opportunity to get some really powerful lights to grow plants and keep them on a timer. you grow a carpet and do an amano style with two color types of shrimp in each tank

    @Kasshan I'm not really looking to do shrimp in this tank. I'm a fan of shrimp, but I'm dead set on getting multis for this tank.

    I've been fascinated by them for some time and I haven't been able to build a new tank in over a year, so it was time.

    Really looking forward to watching them, I was planning on running a time lapse of the tank with my gopro when I introduce them, so I can see how much changes in 24 hours.
