hey thanks tat... its a Fluval Flora. Its about 7.8 gal (11.8" X 11.8" X 13.8"). I didn't rip off the cheesy styrofoam backgrund because frankly i was too excited to fill it up lol. I recently (last night) added an Ehiem 2211 external canister. I got dual filters going until the new filter gets established. I'll post new pics soon...cheers!
