My 180 gallon acrylic finally arrived on monday and I'm just now getting around to posting this. Its sweet...my reds are going to love me for their new home when its done cycling. I've got a ton of feeders swimming around in their trying to let it cycle plus a few other larger fish that were relatively cheap. My ammonia is starting to raise a little but not enough to where its really started the cycle. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll be posting pictures of my reds in their new tank.

Glad you finally go tit!!!
How many feeders are you planning to cycle it with?? I had 100 large in my 125 gal. Took 3 days and now they're just food. Gotta love killing 2 birds with one stone.

I bought 60....which were kinda small which was all they had. A bunch of those died and I bought a bunch more at petsmart and dumped those in. Just the other day I bought 30 more pretty large ones that seem to be doing fine....I've been loading my tank with food for them as well trying to increase the rate of it cycling. When I put my driftwood in they just floated to the top, one decided to sink last night...I was gonna try and wait till the others sank till I took the pics but I think I'm just gonna post some pics of my tank tonight.
