Gift tank.

My new neighbor whom purchased the house next door was cleaning out the garage. He came across an aquarium and asked if i had any interest in it. He said if I want it he will GIVE it to me. I went over and looked at it and jumped at the opportunity to have it. It is a 75 gallon Oceanic combo with stand hood and model 75 trickle filter plus. After 4 days of some serious scrubbing and the use of bleach and apple cider vinegar, my new to me set up looks like this. Progression pics to come.

That's one heckuva score there, and a really nice neighbor. I'll be anxious to see this build progress.

As for the Dr. Tim's, I've only used it on freshwater, but it should work fine if you follow the instructions. I've never had a problem with it.
