Well, my current 50 gallon tank has the bulk of fish that I am going to be moving to the 150 as soon as I get it running.

Here is a video of the tank I am going to be moving into the 150:

Other fish not shown that will (most likely) be moved to the 150 as well:
1 algae eater (around 1 foot long)
4 cory cats (emeralds)
5 clown loaches

The cichlids in the video have taken to breeding, so I am running out of room fast. Should be getting the 150 going soon!

Things reporting progress in this video:
1 - Stand holds, is level and perfect! (still have to finish the covers/doors)

2 - Resealing job was a success!

3 - Finished my DIY sump. Shown at the end with the drip tray in action. Will be adding about 5 gallons of bio balls plus rings and crushed coral for PH buffer.

4 - Finally found a overflow (almost did a DIY PVC one), got it cheap and got it setup and works great.

5 - Found a pump for $10 at home depot, but it might be a tad small. I believe it is at this height doing about 250-300 GPH, might end up getting a higher GPH pump down the road IF needed.


Next video should show my lighting. Am doing a custom LED setup, but have to order them from hong kong, so will be awhile before I get them and have time to build the canopy and wire them up.

Here is an updated video of my 150 gallon cichlid tank.

I have just a basic lighting setup, as I am still not sure if I should go with an LED or T5 setup.

The blank background is an eyesore, I know. Should have the tank back blacked out (or something) soon.

Am not sure how I want to finish the stand. Was thinking of some nice black curtain like stuff to attach to the stand, would look great and allow easy access under the stand.

My DIY sump filter is working wonderful. Finally found a good price on 7 gallons of bio balls and have 25lbs of crushed coral as more bio/PH buffer. Been keeping the water nice and clean!

All breeds (red jewels, electric yellow labs & kenyi's) are actively breeding. Since I shot this video, have had at least 3 more kenyi's & 200+ red jewel fry show up.
It's going great, will post another video when more progress/events happen.
