Hello TPT community:
I thought it would be time to get a journal up now that I have some progress going. I have had this tank for about a year now, with a few tear downs/re-do's.
I started out with a 20 gal RCS tank that is still up and running, but is now at my Grandmas with my first Fluval 205 filter and now has Gold fish. Then during one of petco's $1 per gallon sale I picked up a 40B. The tank sat in a corner of my room for a few months til I saved up enough to buy a the rest.
I do light cleaning w/ 30% weekly water changes
