Nano Church tank

So i got this tank at a church yard sale, for 5 bucks, it included an aquaclear 20, pretty good deal, i set it up and ran for a few months now, i had some breeder guppys in there for a while, well i moved the guppys out, (there is a few baby guppys still in there) and will put shrimp in there when they come in,


its a pretty cool tank,

right now i got:
Moneywort
Anubias
Dwarf hairgrass

Nice score. I think that's a Fluval Edge without the plastic parts.

gives you more room to move stuff around, cleaning, looks better topless, water evap is the downfall though but not that bad.
