Default Martin's New 230g

Hi guys, I got out of the hobby when I moved house 5 years ago. I sold the tank, stand a lights but kept the rest.

Decided now was the time to get back in. All I have is the tank and 1/2 a stand so far.

Tank: 30" x 24" x 6'. I actually thought I was getting the same tank I had before but this one turned out to be a foot longer... bonus.

Its drilled for bean animal, and this time I offset the overflow so I can actually get my arm into it. So difficult when its in the middle of the tank.

Tank was from Dave at Concept Aquariums (thanks!). So far its sitting in my living room upstairs while i con enough people into helping me slide it down the stairs into the basement.

I also decided I was done with siphoning for water changes so I had a hold drilled 1/3 the way down the back for draining the water out.

The stand I am building just based on some videos I found on you tube about how to build them.

That's about it for now. I think I have forgotten everything in 5 years including how to do a cycle.

Tank stand will be covered in barn wood eventually.

Doesn't matter how much you have been reading until you take the plunge.
You don't know as much as you think.
