 Hello  folks,
 
 I  thought  of  starting  this  thread  of  keeping  track  of  sorts  for  my  new  Goldfish  tank  which  I'm  building  at  home.  I  will  post  photographs  as  the  build  progresses  in  the  coming  months  to  come.  Since  this  is  a  decently  big  project  ¬†and  there  will  me  multiple  components  which  will  be  added  to  the  tank  it  will  take  time  and  also  a  whole  lot  of  patience  from  my  end  which  I  hope  I  can  tackle.  Good  things  take  time  to  shape  up!
 
 The  tank  has  a  little  story  attached  to  it.  About  a  couple  of  years  ago,  I  walked  into  my  local  aquarium  fish  shop  and  noticed  4  Goldfish  being  housed  in  a  small  tank.  The  quality  of  water  in  that  small  tank  was  anything  but  pristine.  The  fish  looked  underfed  and  one  of  them  had  a  nasty  cut  on  it's  fins.  I  could  tell  the  fish  were  extremely  unhappy  being  stuck  in  such  poor  conditions.  At  that  point  I  knew  I  had  to  do  something.  I  needed  to  rescue  them.  
 
   I  ended  up  getting  all  of  them,  brought  them  home,  and  have  had  them  with  me  in  a  120  gallon  [4'  (L)  X  2'  (W)  X  2'  (H)]  tank  ever  since.  Over  the  last  two  years  they  have  grown  to  become  lovely  beauties  and  become  an  integral  part  of  my  fish  keeping  hobby.  Watching  them  become  such  colorful  splendors  have  given  me  immense  joy.  Their  structural  growth  has  improved,  their  cuts  and  wounds  have  healed  (with  a  few  scars  from  the  past)  and  their  long  flowing  fins  are  now  much  healthier.
 
 Thus,  I  finally  decided  to  give  them  an  even  bigger  home.  A  ground  they  could  call  their  own  home  and  also  allow  other  friends  to  join  them  in  the  future.
 
 Ladies  and  Gentlemen  this  is  a  journey  of  making  a  210  Gallon  tank  for  the  Goldies  I  truly  cherish...
 
 Fish  Tank  Details:
 

 Dimensions:  84"  (L)  X  24"  (W)  X  24"  (H)  
 Tank  Capacity:  210  Gallons  (800  Liters  approximately)
 Substarte:  None,  Minimalist  Bare  Bottom.
 Stand:  Iron  with  wood  top.
 
 
 Photographs:
 
 As  the  glass  arrived  last  week:
 
 
 
 The  glass  was  sent  to  me  last  week,  early  in  the  morning.  I  was  fast  asleep  when  my  house  guards  informed  me  that  a  truck  had  arrived  with  aquarium  glass.  3  men  from  the  glass  store  has  accompanied  the  driver  of  the  truck  and  they  huffed  and  puffed  their  way  to  the  4th  floor  of  my  house  where  this  tank  will  be  housed  with  all  of  the  glass  panels.
 
 
 
 
 
 Filtration:  2  X  SunSun  HW  304A  +  1  X  SunSun  302A  +  1  SunSun  603B  (For  Water  Polishing  Only)  
 
 I  also  have  ordered  an  Eheim  2217,  which  I  should  receive  soon  and  will  be  used  on  the  tank  as  well.  One  of  the  SunSun  HW  304A's  will  be  kept  for  backup.
 
 Miscellaneous  stuff  I  needed:  
 
 
 I  will  be  using  2  power-heads  for  water  movement  inside  the  tank.  One  I  already  had  which  is  rated  at  2000  L/H  and  the  above  one  I  bought.
 
 
 Seachem  Ammonia  Alert.  
 
 Although  I  will  be  cycling  the  tank  for  a  good  month  I  have  already  set  the  filters  up  on  my  old  tank  so  that  they  will  be  cycled  and  help  with  establishing  the  new  tank  once  it's  been  all  set.  Speeding  up  the  cycling  process  if  you  will.  I  might  add  in  a  few  Zebra  Danio's  post  2  weeks  but  that's  still  undecided.  My  Goldfish  will  only  get  added  after  two  months  from  the  day  I  start  the  cycling  process.  This  should  help  the  tank  and  the  filtration  system  handle  the  bio-load  once  I  put  the  fish  in.
 
 
 To  keep  track  of  water  temperatures.
 
 The  tank  was  to  be  made  by  Mr.  Swapan  Nath  from  Kolkata  (aka  "Buro  Da"  in  the  Fishkeeping  Hobbyist  Community).  He  is  undoubtedly  one  of  the  finest  makers  of  aquariums  and  fish  tanks  and  till  date  I  have  always  trusted  him  with  making  all  my  tanks.  
 
 I  will  be  posting  the  tank  making  photographs  soon...  
 
 Thanks  for  watching  and  as  always  Happy  Fishkeeping  to  everyone!  Smile
