Transformation Of My Tank

Recommended Posts

This is my 100g tank that I bought from a lady back in February. When I went to her house to pick it up, she had it stored in a hay barn! The stand was in pretty bad condition...the lady had cats and they had used the stand as a scratching post. :blink:

Three of the doors had deep scratches on them and one side of the stand looked really bad. My husband told me I should just trash the stand and buy a new one, but I decided to give it a shot at refinishing it. I lost count of how many hours I spent sanding all of it and then staining and sanding some more.

Here's a photo of the tank when I went to buy it. Very sad, wasn't it!

I finally got it finished and set up in August. I still have some things that I need to get for it. Another Aquaclear filter is on my Christmas list and I want to get a good air pump to hook up my airstones. I love the look of canopies on tanks, so my sweet husband made one for me.

This is what it looks like now.

Holy CRAP!!!!! :krazy: That's INSANE refinishing goin' on right there!

I'll be interested to see some fish in there, and I'd love to watch them swimming among the pillars. Or do you already have fish in there?

Looks awesome! :#1

Nicely done.

I know it was hard work, but what a sense of accomplishment you must have with such a beautiful result.

The tank decoration is great too - like your own personal atlantis.

Terrific!
