This is my new tank. We are living on a base in Japan so we tend to just set up two tanks but this time I get to set up a different one. This tank was picked up from the trash and cleaned up. Had to do some polishing to get the scratches out. The Angels were given to us by a friend who decided to raise Oscars. The Plants were bought at our Local Japanese stores. Not sure of their names.

Can't belive someone wouldn't have offered to sale it first instead of trashing it. Those of us on military bases often find things like this at house where people are going to a new base. The light is a Red Sea Phazer that was found in a box next to this tank. We had to remove alot of scratches from this tank before it was finaly clear enough to see through.
