Got another tank. :)

Just returned from getting another tank. I was approached over the weekend by someone at our local show saying they had a tank they wanted gone. Well today I went and collected it. Looks to be a 54g corner bow front tank, stand, glass top, light, heater along with a couple of really large air pumps.

Not sure what to do with it....

I was and am. Thinking it will be sold at our local club auction in May and the procceds will go to the local club as a donation. I don't have a place for it but hate to see a good tank go to waste.

Think about how cool it would be to have a sloped lava rock wall with a lush carpet in front and lots of sulawisis!

You could hide all the equipment behind the slope and it it would looks like there was absolutely nothing in the tank but a drop checker maybe!

How about another riparium? I have thought of using a corner tank, not sure how it would work though.

Actually the tank, stand, glass top and light are spoken for and the club is going to get a nice donation out of it.
