Here is my 125 gallon tall tank that is going to house my new incoming fry. But first a little back story, the tank was setup as a planted tank. I had the tank go belly up after a brand new 20lb CO2 tank emptied into the tank over night and killed everything in the tank, except 7 Cory Cats and one tetra(which have all been moved to other tanks). So I have done away with the plants and have decided to go with fronts. I am very excited to get the fry and give them a great new home.

The tank before the belly up.


After the CO2 Dump


So tonight, I start the breakdown of the old tank, and the birth of the new one.

First I started with replacing the lights. I went with 2 50/50 lights and 2 Deep Blue.
Lights off, off the tank


Lights On, off the tank


Stay Tuned for more updates.

Cool tank, shame about the CO2 dump.
I agree, I almost would say that I'd start over with the planted tank and try again but knowing me I know I'd just get an Oscar.

I loved the planted tank, but I had to many issues with it, I just don't have the time to maintain it. The tank is almost empty, gravel is going to be removed, and it will be ready for the new fry on Thursday.

Turned on the wet/dry today to help with the cloudy water. Tonight I will level the sand out and put the rocks in the tank along with the PVC pipes for play toys.
