I am currently resealing a 55 gallon tank that I got on craigslist.com for $30. It came with a metal stand that I am sanding and repainting.
I live in Somerville, MA. (Originally from Honolulu.) It's been raining so my sealing and painting projects are on hold. Hopefully it will be sunny soon.
I went online to Drs. Fosters and Smith and purchased an Emperor 400 (I like biowheels) and a Visi-Therm 250 watt heater.
I plan to raise livebearers. I'm thinking fancy guppies, mollies and cory cats.
I currently have a 20 gallon tank that is doing well. It is home to four guppies and two cory cats.
I've been lurking on the boards getting some information on cycling and sealing tanks. I find this site to be well managed and informative.
Wish me luck that my 55 gallon tank will never leak.
