The fatmans lowtech adventure

So a couple months ago O decided that i needed to have a fish tank again. But it has been the better part of 10 years since my last tank so i put the word out that i was lookin for anything fish tank related for free or really cheap. my buddie seth said come on over and he hooked me up with everything but a tank. later i found a 20gl tall and a 37gl tall. i decided to build the 37 which i still havent decided if i made the right choice. but heres what ive done so far.

37gl tall
Marine flow canister filter
aquatech 30-60 filter
3 shop lamps with 25w cfl's
tiny heater

Miricle grow organics choice potting soil with a sand cap
the branch was found in the woods


snails (horny nerites and zebra)
2 ottos
6 cardinal tetras
