Default Finally, a new tankset!

Hi guys, have been keeping monsters in a 4x2x1.5 tank, and found it too small to monsters, so changed to keeping angels, etc.
Found it wasn't my type.. So I decided to order a new tank from n30, and Weeyang came to my place, solved some problems regarding spacing, and finally ordered. Tank came few days back.

Now I just started cycling, hopefully it will be ready in around 2 weeks time.

Took some photos along the way and just to share with everyone the process of the tank..

Tank size is 4.7(due to space constrains)x2.5x2.5
With 4 ft sump.


Shall Let the pictures do the talking.. Enjoy





Time I have been waiting for.. The arrival of the truck




Arrival of cabinet and hood

Finally the full tank shot




It was a back breaking and tiring few days, but it's worth it.


Thanks for reading.
