But it has been the better part of 10 years since my last tank so i put the word out that i was lookin for anything fish tank related for free or really cheap. my buddie seth said come on over and he hooked me up with everything but a tank. later i found a 20gl tall and a 37gl tall. i decided to build the 37 which i still havent decided if i made the right choice. but heres what ive done so far.
