Hi Folks.

I have decided to start fresh and tear down the 150G glass tank and have a custom made acrylic tank.
Ive decided on bulk heads on the bottom of tank just so I have no junk on the back.
Here is my plan as of now.

Tank, 120G 48"x24"x24"
Filter, Eheim 2262,
CO2, Danner Needle wheel with built in Venturi..Sweet

Substrate, Aaron T's mineralized substrate
Lighting. 54wx8 T5 pendant style fixture Tek..Noon burst all 8

Regards, Orlando

Just talked to my friend and he said the tank will be ready next week.
So...This is all I have so far...
GenX pump, and the Mazzei injector set up.
The pump will be used only to power the Mazzei so I think it should work great.:)

looking forward to this build! That Mazzei looks like a serious piece of equipment, is it used for fertilizers or a Co2 reactor? I haven't ever used T5s, but 8 sounds like a noon blast of hellfire! You might have to trim twice a day!

What happened to your 150? I know someone who could take care of it for you.........:p

Will do Tex!:)
My hands are swollen and numb from 14hrs of tearing down and rebuilding.
Not to mention transferring wet pets to a number of 40G breeders.
So..tomorrow night will be plumbing, leveling and testing..
I will post pictures of all that not so fun stuff:)

Regards, Orlando

Sorry it's been so long folks :)
The tank is doing great and is still filling in. But here is an updated photo for you.


I don't get much time to scape or trim much, but I do have a new secret trace Ive been using that I have made myself and it seems to be working like a charm.
Please let me know what you think.
Im no aquascaper, just a collector :)

Best Regards, Orlando
