Looking good. They even threw in a small child! You might need a larger tank for it in a couple years though...

He kinda surprised me with the kid. I think I'll keep her. She already knows her alphabet and how to count backwards from 10.

Thanks! She's a doll and the tank will be awesome. You're right about the filters... I'm so glad I had prenegotiated the price down to $150 instead of $200 cause from the looks of them he should have paid me to take them! Hopefully I can clean them and they'll work.

Ok! So it's midnight and I've been working on it for about 2.5 hours. The big filter works. The little filter kind of works. It's making bubbles... Maybe I didn't put it back together right. Anyway, all 3 heaters are clean. Here's pics of what ingot so far.
