We talked about it extensively and finally we decided to move Colossus to another part of the office. I setup a temporary 29 Gallon tank to hold my pitful plants and fish. Next we started the teardown, cleaning and moving of this monster. We did everything over a couple of days when we took a break from working.
We switched the wall that Colossus occupied and discovered that the tile on the floor wasn’t level. I ended up sitting the tank 12 inches from the wall. I personally don’t like it that far from the wall, so I got some palms to cover the gap. I have since learned that it’s nice having space behind the tank to hook up sensors and power cords.
I finally bit the bullet and bought a Yueqing WYIN W01-20 CO2 regulator. Quick trip to the welding supply store and I got a 5lb tank full of carbon dioxide. I have put off this purchase for sometime but I know it was neccessary for the tank I want to create. At $22 USD for a refill, it’s reasonable priced after the initial investment.
