  • New Store Display Tank

    I just finished setting up another display/sell tank at the store.
    It is a 33g 24lx18x18 Mr Aqua Rimless.
    Using Mr Aqua soil, and co2. Eheim 3 filter

    The purpose of this tank is to accomplish the following:

    Demonstrate a CO2 system to potential customers
    Show off what a difference has a substrate vs gravel in planted tanks
    Proper lighting (35-40 mol at substrate)
    Landscape in a way to house fancy plecos (hence the embedded driftwood)
    Landscape it in a way to merchandise fish easily

    here is our other display/sell tank. It is a 48g Mr Aqua tank, also with Mr Aqua soil. We constantly sell the lilies and blyxia out of this tank. It is in the 25-35mol range, non co2.
    We keep our dwarf cichlids, apistos here.

      Place some Xmas moss on the wood so it creeps up and is 1/2 in the water etc, has access to the tank water etc.

      It'll take to the wood really easily, if you do this with Fissidens, then you'll sell/make more $.

        I tried it with java but it doesn't like being out of water. I have not been able to get Xmas moss in months. I'm tryin to get a wholesaler for mosses.

        Even as is the lack of nice fw displays in stores down here is 0 so people come in and just stare at the tank. Lol

          Nice tank, however. it seems like you have the spray bar above water level, this will cost you co2

            Need to strike a balance between happy fish and happy plants. Fish before plants. A 5 lb will go a long time in a 33 gal tank.
            I've seen what too much co2 does to fish.

                We built everything from scratch.
                There are some companies that make the shared system merchandisers. Marineland is one of them.. There is another company out of jacksonville fla.

                      An inappropriate disguise would be more like it…

                      Hi Henry,

                      Wow, that is a nice store!
                      You have done wonders with that space.

                      I am going to have to find an appropriate disguise, sneak back, and see your place for myself.

                        Lol

                        Thanks. We could use twice the space just for freshwater.

                        This layout is tough because I only have 8 ft ceilings and their is a 1ft ac soffit that runs on the other side where the tanks are. Even then I have over 50 tanks and 7 qt hosp tanks.

                          Mea culpa, I really had my doubts… But, Wow!

                          Hi Henry,

                          I have to admit that being familiar with the area and the building.
                          I was a bit dubious, but I have to say that your setup appears well thought out with a great use the space and well,:highly_amused: wow!
