got the tank, stand, penguin 350 filter, coralife 6700k 93watt light, hood, test kit, air pump, sand substrate and deco's off some guy on craigslist for 60 bucks
its an old 30-32.5 gallon all glass aquarium tank built in like 1996 (as the tag on the bottom states.. built by Jennifer 1996(or some other ladies name I cant remember)
tossed the used nasty sand (probably had ich or somethin)
returned air pump and decos to petsmart for store credit for $80 making the tank and everything included FREE
(thats a $20 profit)
used my store credit for floramax substrate (mix of the black and orig color, they didnt have 4 bags of black.. so i had to settle for 2 and 2)
bought petsmart driftwood on the right
LFS driftwood and rock on the left
2x eheim jager 75watt heaters on the back wall
1 sunset hygro split up on left and right side
rotala indica spread out all over
java moss and a couple anubia's on the driftwoods
dwarf tears and microsword patches here and there
(dwarf tears not doing so good)
I dont have a pressurized co2.. i just use the API co2 liquid booster.
9 cardinal tetras
3 glowlight rasboras (1 jumped.. so down to 2)
5 cherry shrimp (1 went missing.. down to 4)
2 amano shrimp
2 baby BN pleco's
had a bunch of nerites, but after my tank started to get saturated with eggs i promptly returned them.
Thoughts on tank so far?
