The thing has sat here dry for a year now...
Gonna get it up and running again finally!

Below is a pic of what it used to look like with my mixed pygos...
I've now painted the back black and have 140 pounds of Tahitian Moon on order... will be here in 2 more days...

I'm working toward completely "Amazoning out" my office...

Thanks Dairy,

Here's a pic of it with the back painted and cycling... waiting for the gravel on Wednesday.
The bogwood is in the jacuzzi tub upstairs getting waterlogged...

Thanks.
I'm going to be ordering a bunch of 1" baby reds on Friday of this week.

The black sand, bogwood and plants go in on Wednesday.

I'm going to order two dozen 1 inchers, and probably sell half of them within the first week, just for the hell of it.
I'll then disperse the rest as they grow.
I have an ad on Craigslist for the fish, so I'm ready with takers at pretty much any time.

No chemicals in the jacuzzi... it's just the jacuzzi tub in my master bath...
Thanks for asking though!

Is it city water? I think city water usually has some chemicals in it though.

Out here in Central Oregon, we have pristine public water with no chlorine or other additives.

I perform 50% water changes weekly, and never add anything to the water, I just run it in directly from the faucet.

And with a rubber hose!

Well, I got the Tahitian Moon Black Sand and bogwood in there... and I love it!

I've always wanted to try sand... and I'm glad I did.
Black background with TM black sand..... great combo!

I can't decide if I'm gonna put some ferns in there or not...
I love a planted tank, but don't wanna upset what is right now an "Ominous" look.

I'll post some pics when it's all done.
I will probably order the baby reds in a couple days.

Okay, the Tahitian Moon Black Sand is in, the bogwood is set up, and the tank is cycled.
I didn't stop there, I also pulled a couple other tanks out of storage and decided to get them going as well.
(You know how it is... once you get going... piranha tanks are like tattoos... ya gotta keep adding...)

I ordered my 24 baby 1" reds yesterday, as well as an irritan and black mask elong.

I'll probably have them shipped by the end of this week.

Stay tuned for pics.
