It's been the background since I got this tank a loooong time ago. I just remember getting this back when I was still in high school many years ago. My brother and I saved and pooled our money together to get this tank. We set it up as an "Amazon" theme tank similar to something we saw in a magazine. We had fake plants, Angels, mix of tetras and corys. A lot of noob mistakes were made but it was a learning experience. It was then converted to a cichlid tank and I had an awesome Jack Dempsey all throughout college and he eventually passed of old age
I lost interest and my brother took over but our lives moved on with starting our own lives and family and the tank was left with neglect at my Parents' house. Last year my parents wanted this thrown out and I took it instead and cleaned it up.
It's not as fancy as the newer tanks, it's got plenty of scratches, but I have history with this tank
