Smile 360L Tank from England!

Hi all,
Loving these forums and have read some great advice and seen loads of inspiration for myself as I plan my second ever tank.

My obsession started around 12 months ago when my girlfriend and I moved into our first house. I decided to start a small tank in our living room and having never tried to keep fish before it was great fun learning about fish keeping and the science used to keep a tank stable.

Anyway this is how that tank looks today, its over stocked and there and probably many sins going on with it but as I stated it was a fresh hobby and I have learnt alot along the way. Please excuse me...

and some of my tetras.....

and my Ruby Shark....


So here it is.. Went and picked it up from my local fish shop. Its 360L.

The pictures make it look darker but the wood is actually Oak...

Anyway, small update..

Picked up my first set of lights today, went for two 39watt t5's. Im going to have 3 or 4 by the end of the month but to get the ball rolling I started small.

Also picked up a plain black background that I hope to get stuck on tomorrow after work....

I picked two different tubes up to cover a wider spectrum...

Here she is, lite up for the first time!
