Now i had to buy the stuff to fix the look of the tank. I went to the paint shop to buy special paint

for aluminium frame but after a long talk with the expert there i ended up

with schoolboard paint. You use this for turning a standard piece of would into

a schoolboard that you can write upon with chalk.

We started on the paintjob. It used to be bronze but slowly it turned matte black

It had some cabinets that were light wood colored. We painted them white

The end result was precisely as I had imagined. I was very satisfied

Slowly the stuff i needed to build the background arrived. I had ordered a lovely

background from Aquaterra for my tank, bought in a shop called Unimati. Ole

who owns Unimati is a leading expert on backgrounds with filters so he had helped

me figure out what i needed. There was no background that had the size

300x60 cm's so i had to buy 2 in 160x60

The filter material for the background. 125 liters of bioballs. 25 liters of filtercotton and

a rough filtermat was my components to build the perfect filter.

The 2 backgrounds where 20 cm to long when put together. That had to be sawed off

Shipment 2 came from Cichlidcenter. Also one of my prefered places to shop. Prices

are very good and the service is max! My shipment contained 2 hydor korelia poweheads,

4 t5 tubes for my lamp (which had not arrived yet)
