 Hi  Folks,
   
 It's  great  to  be  back  home  after  spending  couple  of  months  in  Nigeria.  I  decided  to  go  for  a  6  foot  planted  tank  and  to  make  this  a  journal  which  might  help  others  who  are  planning  for  a  large  tank.
 
 Tank  Specs:  6X1.5x2  
 Glass:  12  mm  Modi  Guard  (tank  made  with  black  silicon)
 Filteration:  Eheim  2217  &  Eheim  2213
 Lights:  8  no  of  T8  tubes.  36  watts  each(6  no  of  Â 6500  K  and  2  no  of  8000  K  tubes)
 Substrate:  8  bags  (9lts  each)  of  ADA  Africana  Soil
 Stand  and  Hood  are  custom  made.
 
 The  hood  will  hold  two  fans  on  each  side  for  air  circulation.
 
 The  stand
 
 
 The  hood
 
 
 CPU  Fan
 
 
 That's  it  for  now...waiting  for  the  tank  to  arrive.

 Thanks  everyone.  I  somehow  did  not  like  the  colour  of  the  stand  and  decided  to  change  it  into  black.  The  stand  and  hood  should  be  ready  with  the  new  look  by  today.
 
 I  am  not  sure  why  the  pictures  are  not  displaying.  I  copied  the  link  from  flickr  and  have  posted  it.  Can  anyone  help  to  figure  out  what's  wrong  with  the  link.
 
 
 Regards,
 Prem

 I  also  decided  on  the  soil  type.  It's  going  to  be  ADA  African  Soil.  
 
 Amazonia  is  for  sure  better  than  this,  but  I  chose  this  soil  because  the  plant  growth  is  slow  in  aficana  as  compared  to  amazonia.  So  this  mean  less  pruning.  
 
 Regards,
 Prem  Kumar
