Hey all, ive had my big tank set up in the basement for a few years as a home for my 9" fahaka puffer, I recently sold him and am converting it into a FOWLR tank like I had origionally planned.

I have no idea what the stocking list will be but i have a month of cycling to decide, hell i might do a 50 clowns and a buncha nems I dunno

anyway onto the photos

I am using a Fluval FX5 as my filter/overflow its a piped solid state system I am not ready to jump into a sump and dont think its needed for a fowlr.

goes from tank to FX5, to a UV sterilizer then back into tank

I am using black sand I really like the look of it, and for now this is my aquascape to allow maximum swimming space
