A Birthday Present for My Father

My father recently retired and is interested in getting back into freshwater fish. He mentioned wanting to buy a beta tank. However, I still have his old aquarium from when I was younger and would like to get it operational again.

His old tank is a Perfecto Mod 3. Some of the accessories include a Profile 5500 pump, Supreme Heetmaster mod 2, and Secondnature filter. Unfortunately, I do not have most of the original paperwork, and I have no idea how to assemble and function check the equipment.

Any advice as to where I could find instruction sheets? I would like to set the tank up for my dad as a surprise.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best,

Mike ~

As to finding the instruction manuals, I would check the website if they one, or just search for them on google.

I'm not sure yet. I filled it to capacity to test for any leaks, but I didn't take the time to measure volume. I would guess about 25-30 gallons?

Thanks to all for the warm welcome, btw!

Could you get a picture?
Is it vertical or horizontal. This is a big factor if you're getting fish.
Vertical is more expensive:/

It is a vertical tank, hexagonal shaped. I will attempt to get a picture up tonight if possible.

Actually, i made a mistake, horizontal is the most expensive. Sorry:/
Anyways, the tank you have must be impressive. Just make sure to respect the fishes needs, some need more room, some need more room to swim in.
