After what seems like an eternity I finally got my tank up and running today.
I built my stand from scratch. Still need to put the doors on.

40g Breeder, Marineland C220 Canister filter
200w inline heater
Black diamond blasting sand

two pieces of driftwood and rock.

Not too much in the way of updates. Day 9 of tank. Some small growth started. Day 4 of fishless cycle.

Looks great. What fish do you plan on putting in there?

that still remains to be a good question :)

I know I want m and fm GBR pair but I will be waiting until around the 4 month mark until finding them. I want a schooling fish, i have cardinal tetra's in my 29g so I want something different. Maybe rummy nose. I think I will go with a BN Pleco, 4 or 5 zebra nerite snails for cleanup.
I have been thinking about 1m/2fm set of pearl gourami's and be done right there.

I might go with two smaller schools or just one large school of tetra's, have not decided.
