I've been really quiet here lately, because I've been trying to keep a secret, but it's getting really close and I just can't help myself I have to share it with people who understand and wont just look at me all weird :lol:

For the past few months I've been saving for a new tank! I'm getting a bonus this week so I will have enough to get one!!!

I'm not 100% sure what I'm getting but I'm looking for it to be at least 500Litres (Mine now is 300Litres). There is one I've got my eye on at the LPS, that is 600 Litres, but I'm looking around for second hand ones too :)

I'm planning on painting the back of it black, and getting black sand for substrate, as well as some live plants :D I am SO EXCITED.

And the best part is that having a tank upgrade will give me space for more fish! I only want to get one for now, because I want to make sure it's really special, It;s been THREE YEARS Since I've got a new goldie! And my dad as agreed to drive me to the only fish store I've never heard ANY bad reviews about, that always leave me drooling with envy with their goldies on facebook.

I'll definitely keep you all updated as I actually get the tank and the set up and of course when the new arrival arrives :) But I absolutely couldn't keep it in any longer xD I'm just too excited.

These are some of the goldies the shop I'm going to has posted on their facebook before, I'm thinking of a ranchu or oranda though :)

Where do you LIVE that you have beautiful fish like that in a shop?! Wow! I love the first fish the most, but they're all gorgeous. :-)

Edit: And they post their fish on Facebook too?!?

I've inquired about one tank so far. Waiting for them to send me the measurements so I can work out if it will fit where I want it as well as how much it holds :)

The only downfall I can see from the ad is it doesn't have lights or lids so I'd need to get some.

(They are also selling I think 3 plecos with it but said in the add they are willing to separate, no plecos for me :P As much as I love them)

No decisions made yet though :P

2,098 for the tank, stand, 2 canister filters, gravel (I chose a really fine dark gravel and will probably end up either leaving it out or doing an extremely thin layer), food, water conditioner, backing (A nice black one so I don't have to paint), gravel vac (will be useful for QT), a master test kit, and two 300W heaters.

The tank is 600 Litres, so 158 Gallons.

There was another tank I looked at that was 700 Litres, but it was almost $1500 for just the tank itself, then another $500 for the stand/hood, then I'd have to pay for lights, filters etc. It was really nice but worked out way out of my budget.

The two second hand tanks I inquired about ended up holding less than what my current tank does.

All up I'm really pleased, I've had my eye on this tank for a while and they only just started offering it as a package deal which turned out a whole lot cheaper :D So i'm pretty much broke now, all my savings are gone xD But happy and super excited to get it and set it up
