    Note to self, sucking out all the old ADA AS is a Pain, then I realized that the compressed clay comes out nicely in bricks if you peel off the bottom.


    Still, 180 gallon water changes x 4-5 and it's still pretty cloudy, should be okay in a day or two and another water change, not much dust or soil left.


    The wood is all chewed and eaten up. Still nice etc, but fair from the days of old.


    Selling the tank, filter(36x14x16), prefilter, stand.


    I have a 220 replacement ADA like stand that matches my other tanks. I'll eventually get a new rimless starfire like my other tanks, 72x30x24


    It will be a hard scaped terraced Dutch scape.

    Pics or it didnt happen! :)


    This tank has to be one of the most impressive things to ever hit the hobby. Following the journals on various forums have been so very helpful to me and Im sure thousands and thousands of other hobbyists, not to mention inspirational. It gave me something to shoot for, and showed how to get there. Thanks so much for sharing pics and details of how everything is done over the years.


    Should do a condensed timeline of pics, a eulogy of sorts....
