The stand was not in very good shape and needed some cleaning. I also put a shelf in it to keep things a bit more organized. I also used my DIY method of attaching the stand to the wall in case of earthquake. http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/88234-diy-earthquake-brace-for-tank-stand/page__fromsearch__1 I ordered a fluval 405 filter, but decided to return it and make do with the Power Filter 3 and the fluval 204. This will provide 465 gph, which should be enough given that one of the filters is a canister. I've never set up a canister before. Luckily the guy I bought it from showed me how to do it. I set it up about a week ago and ran it on the old tank with some old media mixed in with the new. I hope this will jumpstart the cycle a bit. Then I placed the tank on the stand and got ready to fill it. The HOB filter didn't work at first, so I had to take it all apart and start it up again. Luckily it started on the third try. It's pretty noisy right now. I hope it gunks up quickly and gets quieter soon. The fluval is quiet and seems to work like dream. The brown saucers are the planters where I'll put the plants. I added Nutrifin Cycle and some ammonia to feed the cycle. I hope to get good test results in a few days and move Fluffy over to the new tank on Monday. New fish on Tuesday!!!! (if all goes well) Full tank shot: Thanks for watching!
