So I know most won't think of this as a "big" tank but a 45 gallon is quite large lol, my largest at the moment is a 33 gallon. So this is going to track the progress of this tank as I get it set up and running.
So the tank is 24x12x36
will be upgraded to LED's but right now there are some regular CFL on it.
at the moment is some large Penguin bio-wheel but I'll be putting my AquaClear70 on it once I get a new motor for it, worth it.
is FloraMax black mixed with PetCo black sand eventually, the FloraMax is in there right now.
This is technically "mom's" tank so she picked out the stock mostly
1 Betta (Bowie)
30-35 Ember Tetras (18 will be from my 29 gallon)
8 Gelius Barbs (also from my 29)
1 BN Pleco (Calico from my 29 gal)
1 pair of German Blue Rams
1 pair of Electric Blue Rams
The tree was there originally but it was literally dying so we took it down literally right after our Christmas party lol. So mom said I could so I put the tank up! Here it is when I started around 4ish pm
And when I filled it (with a 3 gallon bucket lol) and put the floraMax in
It's clear now but I'll take more pictures tomorrow when I put a few plants in it and get a few more things for it as well ^_^
Most likely it will cycled with Tetra SafeStart and seeding from my other filters.
