Split fins usually repair themselves pretty quickly, and without a lot of intervention in my experience. Clean water and a good diet, you should be golden!

Picked up a couple of Ray2s last spring, a 48" for my tropical tank and a 36" for one of the goldfish tanks. Loved 'em ever since.

Then I spotted the "Black Friday" sale Lowe dropped.

Sweet!

Love that craggy driftwood in the center. This is an awesome shape for a tank, IMHO - deep, both vertically and horizontally, it gives you lots of room to layer plants and fish. (Though I'm...
