My summer project
Alrighty. Since I can't be the only one with two expensive hobbies on here, and I generally dislike fish forums, I'm going to start this here.
My summer project, other than working more with Aires, is going to be to get a couple of my fish tanks up and running again. I currently have four tanks, but none of them are running.
First and most important to get going is my "new" (to me) 75 gallon. I got this tank by default when my boyfriend's brother's renters were evicted and left it in the house. It's a very nice tank and came with a nice stand, but both need some work. The tank needs a thorough, deep cleaning (it was left to sit for over a month and the water evaporated, so there's hard water deposits all over the glass) and the trim is light oak, which I hate, so I'm going to paint it black. The stand is blue right now, but the paint job is kinda crappy, so I'm going to paint it, but I'm not sure what color(s) yet. Our living room is done in black, dark reds and gold, but the couch is chestnut leather. There's also a door on the stand that needs to be fixed.
Second is my 20 gallon long. Both tank and stand are black. The tank needs to be cleaned, though (again with the hard water deposits). I'm debating letting my boyfriend "have" this tank to 'scape and stock.
Anyway, I'll put pics of both up, as they sit, tonight, along with descriptions of how I want to 'scape and stock at least the 75, as well as what equipment I have for both.
