Some elbow grease and a good cleaning should do wonders. Make sure it's rinsed really well before starting to add water.

Big TV, big tank, big iMac. I'd say you're set.

The Tank stand was handmade , I believe this whole tank was a custom job that I bought.( bought it off someone on craigslist) The dimensions of this 60 gallon or more tank is not standard size. Its about 20 inches wide.

Yes orandas I think they are very cute I may try some lionheads or ranchus.

I went to look for substrate came home empty Handed. They wanted almost 40 bucks for Eco complete. So I will buy online and get free shipping

Ok I got my first plants but they are in my 8 gallon tank
Not sure the species name but I got 1 crypt , 1 sword, 2 Ludwiga the other two Not sure.
Hopefully This week can get them planted in the big tank. I am lighting the 8 gallon with my t5 fixtures I use for my hibiscus I am thinking of making my 8 gallon a planted tank now . So I may start another thread about that later on.

Here are some pics
