38g 3ft

This was my first tank. It started the addiction when we moved into our house, the last people left this tank behind. The ballast went out and when I went to the pet store to get a new one, I ended up walking out with another tank lol. So this one has been neglected ever since cause I been focused on the new tank. Now that I finished the new tank, I came back to this one. It's in my bed room so I watch it every night as I fall asleep.

Before I started adding plants. I had driftwood soaking in it.
