 Hi
 
 It  was  a  fine  day,  i  returned  from  my  in-plant  training  and  logged  into  IAH...
 i  was  surprised  to  see  a  WTG  post....A  used  120  gallon  for  FREE...all  thanks  to  'BETA'...  Cheering   Cheering   Cheering   
 
 i  then  decided  to  upgrade  my  50gal  '  SouthAmerican  Bolivian  Ram  Biotope  '  to  a  120  gal  'SouthAmerican  Black  water  Biotope".......
 
 i  took  the  tank  from  Betas  house  in  chennai  and  transported  it  to  vellore  without  a  crack,  ufff  i  must  say....
 
 lifting  the  tank  to  the  first  floor  was  the  most  difficult  part.....damn  we  broke  the  overflow....  Thumb Down   Thumb Down  ...guys  if  you  live  on  the  first  floor  and  want  to  bring  a  huge  tank,   just  forget  the  idea.....  Drinking   Drinking  
 
 
 a  small  overview  of  the  specifications.....
 
 SPECIFICATIONS
 
 TANK  :  4'  X  2'  X  2'
 
 CAPACITY  :  Approx.  120  US  Gal
 
 BACKGROUND  :  Black
 
 LIGHTS  :  4  x  3W  3500K  LED
 
 FILTER  :  EHEIM  2217  AND  AQUACLEAR  110  HBO
 
 FILTER  MEDIA  :  EHEIM  Substrat  Pro  and  Filter  Sponge
 
 SUBSTRATE  :  White  Sand  (  40  Kgs  )
 
 DECOR  :  Driftwoods  (  8Kgs  )  and  round,smooth  rocks
 
 A  teaser  for  now....
 
 
 
 will  follow  up  this  journal  as  the  tank  sets  in....
 
 cheers

 Discus  juveniles  are  a  bit  tricky  in  tanks  with  substrates.  You  need  to  go  in  for  semi  adult  discus  of  a  brown  strain  to  make  it  look  natural.
 
 Alternatively  you  can  go  in  for  Red  Head  Tapajos  and  Laetacara  curviceps  instead  of  Discus.

 I  was  looking  for  semi-adult  brown  strains,  but  the  price  factor  hit  me  hard..
 Im  also  thinking  of  buying  juveniles  n  growing  them  in  a  50gal  BB  tank,  n  later  adding  them  to  the  120...
 
 RED  HEADS  are  my  long  time  dream,  for  now  I'll  stick  with  the  red  heads  I  guess...
 
 the  woods  are  still  floating  n  are  in  the  process  of  curing....I  think  I  hav  to  wait  for  some  more  time  to  do  the  scaping...
 
 Cheers

 Growing  out  the  juvis  separately  in  a  BB  tank  would  be  the  best  option.
