    If you are concerned about electricity then you can add insulation foam on the back/sides of your tanks and keep temperatures in the middle of your fishes comfortable range instead of pushing for the maximum

    I really like how you take us step by step through the process, very informative!
    And it’s going to be great. Can’t wait until it’s ready for the rescue :thumbup:

    Yeah, not many people show the ugly grunt work behind the hobby.

    Done with the hardscape, hopefully these plant survive but they are all pretty hardy Anubia and Java fern and I made sore most of the hardscape is pretty secure and wont be moved easily. If he destroys it then he destroys it, but if some of it survives then it will help with the parameters of the tank.

    I've always liked the idea of a big show fish, like an oscar, in a planted tank. Looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

    Well he is in the tank now a big boy around 12cm. Condition is fairly good considering he was kept in a 100 liter tank.
