So after multiple attempts of trying to keep 200g+ used Marineland tanks it’s time to move on to bigger and better thangs. So this is my new official build thread and hopefully I won’t have any issues!!

So with that, quick run down my 265g gave out. My 220g gave out. So now I have to pick my head up and give my pets what they really deserve! A BRAND NEW HOME. With going back and forth with what I was going to do. Really thought about calling it quits. But I said no I can do this and I went with the Plant Aquariums Pro Crystalline 210g 96” tank! Out with the old in with the new. So I have to move everything to bring this monster in. Lots of work to do but here is the beast that will soon make it in my home!

So upon filling at the half way mark I threw a level (4ft) from front to back for the heck of it and this is what I got. The top picture is from the left side of the tank and the bottom is from the right side of the tank from front to back. I think I know the answer but would like to get some opinions? I’m I being over the top or should I fix this?
