So excited! My wife gave me approval to get a 40B!! She thought I was wasting electricity on my nano since I only had a ghost shrimp and a few pond snails in there. So I suggested how about if I get a bigger tank and combine the two. She said ok!

For now I got all my fish and a few plants crammed in to my 10g tank. The rest of my plants are in buckets all around the house. Got 2 filters running so they should be ok till they get their new home. IMG_5073 by Ecopot, on Flickr
Its a mix of a bunch of different aqua soils. Most of it is Kotobuki, some if the really dark stuff is GEX, and the lighter colored stuff in the front was in a bag that wasn't labeled. I think that was the LFS own brand.
That 40b looks very well built! The silicone is nice and thick and it seems like very thick glass. Better than the ones I found around here.
I was lucky I got a deal on it. The LFS was sold out of the cheap 40b tanks so they took apart a box set 40b and just sold me the tank for almost the same price as the cheap ones. I saved around $30 if I were to buy this tank separately.
