Raslad's 29 Gal Journal (56k)

I had received this "FREE" Tank filter and Hood. I didn't know it would already come with fish and a mess. First picture after cleaning, scaping and planting. Cloudy due to new gravel replacing the bright blue stuff that was in there. Gross.

Why can't I get a free tank like that? It's looking really good!

Lol, it was a PITA. I would have scrapped the whole thing and started over, but I felt bad for the fish. The angels were in 4 inches of green water. I figured if they'd lived that long I'd give them a chance.
