Well here I go! Time to join the big leagues. 75 gallon bow front project has officially begun. A big thanks to my cousin for not throwing this guy away. And here I go

I always love bow front glass tanks! What do you have in mind for it @Qball77?

 

It looks like the top center brace was cut out of the top rim, how long was it up and running before?

It was an established tank for 5 years. It’s been empty and sitting outside for 2 years! I’m starting from scratch. There’s 2 canister filters that I’m hoping still work.  There is a chip in the frame on the top that I don’t think was any use it just broke. There’s also a hang on the back marine land filter that I hope is still working. Considering I paid nothing for the whole set up I’d say I got a pretty good deal. Lots of cleaning to do.

I had a 72 gallon bowfront freshwater tank just like yours. Mine also had the middle plastic broken when I got it. I had the whole top plastic thing removed and I put a new one. It was not that difficult and internet was by my side when I had questions. Good luck and I hope it turns out to be an amazing tank!

Well the journey continues! Got the tank filled and lit! Got a great deal on all my equipment so far. I’m only $200 in! 3/4 of the equipment came with the aquarium so all I’ve paid for out of pocket so far is the light.

Equipment:

75 gallon bowfront

stand and hood

penn pax 1200 canister filter

marineland 350

current USA marine led 48”

300w aqueon heater

30 pounds of dry rock so far for my aquascape. I’m working on that now so the pics of my aquascape will follow. For now it’s just a seeded piece out of my other tank. Let the cycle begin!!!!!!!!

Well I think my aquascape is complete. Lots of glue and putty later and I'm happy. Can't wait to start filing it with corals!
