Well after 20 years I finally got another fish tank. I knew when I got back into this hobby, it was going to be with a big tank
Lots of new things since the old days! I was very fortunate and got my set-up used off of CL
for 100 beans.
The tank has some scratches, nothing major though, and the pumps and filters are less than a year old.
I was able to keep all the VERY dirty media and sponges in the filter and a few gallons of the old tank water when setting it up, as it was a running set-up the day I bought it. This has helped immensely in getting things going. Also kudo's to new things like Nutrafin's cycle. Sure works wonders when you are impatient like I am. I also picked up a few good books from the library for reference as I go along.
Tank has been up for just over a week, the fish are happy and water chemistry is good.
