  2. That was a project! Wow! Congratulations. Love the stand, too.

  3. Thanks for joining in!!! I am familiar with cleaning out fish tanks - during my first marriage, we had about 8 tanks, various sizes - up to a 50 gal. long, in our house. The Silent Giant pump became our best friend! And there are some filters you can run once a week off the front of your tank, like the pet stores do, to keep things refreshed! Your new tank background looks great - and the fishies probably enjoy the new look as well! (move the deer head - he may never notice - at least for a few days!) Have a great weekend!

  4. I used to have a fish tank, so I know how much work this is. You did a GREAT job!

  5. That is one big job, so I can understand how relieved you are to have it done. The new background looks great. I was amused the second pump started working. I guess it just needed a good cleaning to get the guck out! LOL! At least you didn't have to buy another one.

  6. Whew! That makes me tired looking at the big tank and thinking about cleaning it and preparing it! It really is beautiful...but I guess I'm just not willing to commit at this point to keeping one up (much to Joy's dismay)! :) I'm impressed with yours, Molly! Great job!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Molly, I have to laugh. My husband bought me, the lady who takes care of 4 cats, 2 dogs, the rats, etc. already, a FISH TANK for a present. I cried and thank goodness he thought they were happy tears. The fish are now going on 8 years old. I am hoping they pass on soon...mean, ain't I?

    It is a BIG job to keep a tank up,and your tank is a BIG one!!!

  8. Hey Molly!

    Those poor fish! I'm sure they were mad to be out of their tank for that long! lol

    Way back years ago I had a boyfriend who worked at a pet store. He had several tanks at his house. He had some kind of a thing that was like a vacuum that would suck up all of the dirt. I have no idea what it was called but his tanks were always clean and it was very easy to do. You might ask at a good pet store about something like that to make it easier. What ever you do don't use dishwasing liquid to clean out a fish tank!!!! My dad did that years ago when I was 5 when my mom was in the hospital with my sister. It killed all of my fish!!!! He didn't get it rinsed enough. Let me tell you a new baby and the death of my fish.......
