Newest tank purchased!

Well visiting my folks on my day off and checked out the LFS. Found this little tank that I couldn't pass up lol. It's only 2.3g but the layout is great IMO.

It's 18" x 6" x 7"

This is the definition of excitement. You are still in the car taking a picture of your new tank, and posting it, lol! You sir, might have a problem.

Looks kind of like a 2.5g "long"...what are you going to do with it?!

the light is just a 13W CFL in a desk lamp, and a Red sea nano filter, with spong on intake to save babie shrimp.
