Great tank! I remember my mom having one of these when I was young.

So, I won the 5 gallon tank, which will make this a much nicer set up, and better for the fish.
here is the fish I won at auction

The metaframe light fixture hood is actually pretty cool. Me and my bro won one at an auction. Hook up two spiral cfls on there and you're good to go. Bad part is that if water gets in, it'll turn the whole hood into a conductor.

Woah - gorgeous fish!

Your tank is going to look stunning with that big pop of color swimming gracefully around.

Thank you! Just ordered everything to set it up with a sponge filter online.I dislike going in big box stores if I don't have to..lol. I have never run one but want to try this instead of a conventional HOB, or nothing which was what I was considering.

Oh, hey. Thought this topic looked familiar... :-)

Just found a metaframe 10 gallon on my local craigslist for $10. Wondering if I should go pick it up. No fancy lid though. Saw one on ebay with the lid going for $100, whew!

Hello. I won't even tell you what I paid for the 5 gallon...
I would find out if it has been leak tested.
