New 36 gal bow

Hello everyone I just had to get on and share this. I woke up this morning, while letting the dogs out noticed the neighbors having a garage sale. Well I walk over and there sits a brand new 36 gal bow front with wood trim and a stand and a penguin filter also a sphion and a few nets. The tank still had the 36 gal sticker on it. Got everything for 50 bucks. It also came with a versa top and a stock 24" t-8.

I am trying to decide what I want to do with it. I thought some of you would have some ideas. Also looking for input on lighting. I am thinking a dual T-5 HO. I think that would be around meduim light? If anyone had this size tank it would be sweet if you had any pics. I have a ten gal and a 20 high alrady.
Thanks everyone.

Depending on the fixture you're probably at high light with a 2x bulb T5HO.

I love bowfront tanks- great pickup!
