Here are the first pics of the tank... I took them when I set up the tank... I am waiting for more plants and woods before I put the fish.

Very clean and minimalistic, I really like it. Those bubbler things are awesome, much more interesting than a bubble bar like I have, will have to look around for those. can't wait to see the fish, another month will give it time to grow in a bit and should be nice and ready for the puffers. Good luck with them, I've never been able to get them to eat well.

Don't forget to feed the tank otherwise the filter bacteria will die off.

I am feeding the tank for 3 weeks now. I think I can add fish next week after a big water change
