Most exciting thing since i started keeping aquariums happened today! When I was growing up(talking elementary school,) someone gave me an aquarium that I kept anole lizards and then hamsters in. My parents cleaned out a storage building today that hasn't been opened since I was in the 4th grade(12 years ago.) Low and behold, there was that aquarium.
Stand and all with a hood and a double light fixture. The lights look larger than T8s, so I'm going to do some research on those. The dimensions are 30x22x12. I've read where that's 35 gallons and where it's 37. Any correct info?
I just got rid of 9 tanks, so keeping this is my gift to me! I'm trying to make a plan for this aquarium.
Deciding between a sw FOWLR
with some kind of dwarf angel, damsel, goby, and some other cool fish and inverts.
A very heavily planted fw
tank with some schooling fish, shrimp, and a gourami or some other centerpiece fish. I just don't know if I like the footprint for a planted tank.
I know I would be happy with either. I just don't know what to pick.
Any inspirational pics, stories, other views, stocking suggestions, even something that I haven't mentioned would be very greatly appreciated! I'm so excited!
