    hello,

    Just taking a break from setting up my 100 Gallon dirted tank. I was able to catch all my fish in my 56 Gallon tank and put in a big plastic garbage can with air hose and heater. finished putting the Organic Miracle Grow and a layer of sand. At the moment, set up a disinfecting station to transfer my plants from the old to the new at the same time killing off the pond snails and eggs...wish me luck.

    everything is finally complete except attaching the sump filter. I was able to transfer all my fish/plants from my 56 gallon tank and I got quite a surprise....I found shrimps lots of them in my 56 Gallon. I thought they all died but from the looks of it they were producing big time cuz I got shrimps in all sizes (Red Cherry Shrimps). My 56 was heavily planted...now my 100 Gallon looks bare :-(

    this is the picture of the tank before setup. When I bought it, the guy told me it was a custom made tank with sump filter holes and extra thickness of the glass walls.
