Some elbow grease and a good cleaning should do wonders. Make sure it's rinsed really well before starting to add water.

The Tank stand was handmade , I believe this whole tank was a custom job that I bought.( bought it off someone on craigslist) The dimensions of this 60 gallon or more tank is not standard size. Its about 20 inches wide.

Yes orandas I think they are very cute I may try some lionheads or ranchus.

I went to look for substrate came home empty Handed. They wanted almost 40 bucks for Eco complete. So I will buy online and get free shipping

Hopefully This week can get them planted in the big tank. I am lighting the 8 gallon with my t5 fixtures I use for my hibiscus I am thinking of making my 8 gallon a planted tank now . So I may start another thread about that later on.
