hello Steve, nice to know someone else with a "loud hobby-GT's" also has a quiet one! Our excuse for our latest aquarium is that Herb and Fred, the two cats who sleep in the bathroom at night, needed something to watch in the wee small hours. That's our story and we're sticking to it! Anything to get another tank in the house. Olde Deeres
Can we see some pictures of the "cat tank"???
What do you have for a filter?
On the 150 I am running two canister filters, a 3 chamber Rena and the largest Cascade. Foam, floss, carbon and ceramic rings for media.
Here's a picture of another tank I'm working on. I decided to bring some of the koi and goldfish inside for the winter so I set up this 125 in the basement. Using stuff I had kicking around the basement my only new costs were $6 for 150 lbs. of 3/8" gravel from my landscape supply guy, and $0.32 for o-rings for the HOT Magnum filter that is running on it. I found the stump on top in the woods. I like the way the roots dangle in the tank. Sorry for the poor picture, I haven't added a lighting system yet.
