    Hi Guys

    I recently got bitten by the bug and started planning my very first tank (135 liter) a few weeks ago. I planned it with no previous experience and would like you guys to adivse me into the right direction. I have some pics of the tank thus far and will post it as soon as I know how to. ;)

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. My pictures seem to be to large to post any suggestions?
    At my house there is a u shaped wall which I thought would be the perfect spot to place the tank. I already started building the stand which is sort of built in... but as soon as Im able to upload the pics you guys will understand my ideas better and help accordingly.

    This is what i have done so far all by myself :biggrin:.

    I have Built the tank with 6mm glass 1000 x 450 x 300 cured it for a week and tested it for approximately 48 hours.
    I managed to get hold of Crystal flo 40 Canister filter which I don't know if it will be sufficient?
    150 watt heater German make.
