The aquarium store finally finished the parts for my sump! However, there was a major miscommunication or something, and it’s not exactly what I expected. I think I can still make it work though. I found out the reason why they took so long too; apparently they aren’t doing well financially and may even go out of business soon, so things have been really haywire there in the past month. So I just decided to take what I could get as far as the sump goes, because if I rejected what they made I would be back to square one. With fish waiting for the tank to be ready, I just can’t afford to do that! My main concern is that the sump is only a 10 gallon tank, which everyone says will be a problem because it will evaporate quickly. I’ll just have to keep an eye on that and be sure to top it off between water changes. So anyway, I can finally begin the assembly and get my new broadtails set up in the 55 gallon tank!
Here’s the tank with all the parts I need to assemble.
Here is how it will look once assembled. The chamber on the left will be full of bioballs, I just don’t have them yet.
Meanwhile, I’m happy to report that the two broadtails are doing really well!
