I am interested in professional help designing a new tank and equipment layout for my home.
I have very limited experience keeping aquatic plants - mostly killing them when I was younger, however I did not know this level of expertiese was 'out there.'
I have completed the wood casework that will be the tank's base, and have avoided purchasing the tank itself because of my inexperience and lack of knowledge. I've been staring at an empty base for almost two years now and I'm ready to get this project finished.
Basic tank dims I want are 84" - 86" long x 30" deep x 30" high. Open top, with lights hung from ceiling above.
The area in the stand below the tank is clear, and I have plumbed a small 'fish room' behind the tank that I anticipated using for tank maintenance (water changes, filters, etc.) It has hot / cold water and a drain.
I am looking for expert help to get me from this point to a reasonably planted tank with fish that I can come home from work, sit down and enjoy. I include routine maintenance / trimming / cleaning as part of 'enjoying' a tank. I don't mind taking care of a tank, but I hated the algae infestations, die-offs, disasters I had previous.
I am an architect / amature handy man...I can provide detailed drawings for your use, and can do the plumbing / wiring, etc. for installation.
Would you be interested in offering your services to guide me?
