The 220 RTG and friends

Its been a while since I posted about this RTG in particular as I am horrible with threads。 I had a thread on this aro when it was smaller but its buried deep somewhere in the AROWANA showcase section。
The 220 gallon was originally used for African cichlids but through a couple years the tank developed some air bubble in the seams。 I kept putting it off for the longest time until I got too irritated from ignoring the expanding air bubbles。 No warranty as it was a custom tank a few years back。 Unfortunately I didnt take any photos of the reseal as I was too upset with scraping silicon off the seams and prying off reinforcement glass strips I placed on as a prior bandaid。

Meh who cares about the story heres the photos of my build。
The highest moment of this build! Spraying the background indoors。

The sumps came from two existing tanks that I had already and modified to fit this application。
Finished sump with water。
Tank fully tiled
Heres some pics of the inhabitants。
Advice for those with large dats or polypterus,big fish tanks for sale use a better net。
that sump setup looks wicked。
Thats intense!!!!! Loved the progress pics
I wish I took better pictures, half way through I remember I should document it。 Not much of a camera guy but this time I figured to go all out on the build。 Theres still lots I have to do but thats in addition to building the racks and re organizing the aquariums around at the same time so progress has been slower than usual。
No worries, everything takes time。 Just keep us posted, Id like to see how it all looks once youre done
Dude how much money did you spend on the sump adjustments and supplies? Lol
