Default New home for my petros

Got the chance to make a big upgrade last weekend so I went from a 280 gallon 72"x30"x30" to a 450 gallon 96"x30"x36". Filtered via 3x 2262, wet/dry with Mag 24 return pump and will end up with 4x MP40 or 2x MP60 circulation pumps.

Stock list:

13 Moshi Mahale
9 Red Fin Longola
14 Red Eye Ikola
17 Famula Bangwe
7 Trewavasae
4 Macros

Hey Houst how jealous am I...
We had an 11-2,5-2,5 a few years ago full of huge centrals. The base broke and flouded the basement. Never again...
Still looks amazing.

Thanks Tom. 11-sx5-2x5 must have been a awesome tank! Wow.

Huge effort this past Saturday to breakdown the 280, move it out, get this one in, set it up and have fish in it the same night. Wet/dry plumbing was tricky so I took my time doing that.
