The other 450. Im just building a new stand for it at work. (Not paying the stupid money juwel want for a cabinet)

Planning to set the new 450 up so i can move the fish over while i repair the current rio.

Then im going to either give the bocourti and dollars the new 450 or close my 180, 110 and 80 down and have one big peaceful community in it instead.

Got a bigger tank in the pipeline also so i can go either way while i wait for it

Me too ๐Ÿ˜€ I want to come away from the smaller tanks now. I get more enjoyment out the bigger set ups.

Planned some options a while back for either a fishroom or i have 2 large outdoor sheds.

I favoured the fishroom and i did start it but ive had to hold off it for a while.
I want 4 x 4x2x2's, a 6x2x2
And a 8x2x2 in it, then ill keep the 2 5ft tanks where they are.

Ill get there eventually๐Ÿ™‚

The 8ft and 4ft tanks are a while off sadly, ive got other projects and things to do before i can turn my attention to getting the fishroom done.

I am however working on getting the 6ft 180g sooner ๐Ÿ™‚ need something to play with while i wait for the fish man cave lol

Built a stand for the second 5ft tank today. Was going to make it out of steel at work but ive gone with good old timber instead.

Getting there nicely. Primer and paint ordered along with a base mat so i just need to decide on if i want to add doors and any more finishings before i paint it.

Can get tank on it then ๐Ÿ™‚ so many ideas and options to think of for it ๐Ÿ˜€
