PostSubject: Upgrade for Jaws (180) and tank mates   Sun Mar 24, 2013 10:34 am

So I have been busy over here getting rid of tanks and finally got Jaws upgraded. I have the 180 with dual over flows and a 75 gallon sump. The return pump is a Sicce 4.0. I also have a canister filter on the sump as well as an AC110. The fish is the tank so far are (Jaws) peacock bass, (Ryu) Talapia buttikoferi, (Rocky) Vieja synspylium, and a Green Terror/Gold saum (Nameless). More to come as it settles in.

Looks good so far! ThumbsUp What is the substrate and are you going to add anything else for decor? This set-up must be very impressive in person. The 75 sump is a 4-foot tank so is the 180 a 6-foot tank?

Yes the tank is 6'x2'x2'. Substrate is a mix of all the black sand I had in the tanks I have sold. As for decorations I may put in some driftwood, but nothing more.
@mpowers jaws is over a foot I would guess 14 inches. Not knowing what he is for sure 3 feet would be max but in aquaria 18" is the norm.
