Hello-intro

Hi All,
I wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I have been browsing the site for a couple of days and learning a lot. I am planning on starting a planted tank. I haven't had a tank since I was growing up and my dad did all of the maintenance, so I have still have many questions.

Thanks,
Susan

A 36 bow front is a great way to go. Petsmart frequently has kits on sale. Good luck!

Welcome Susan.
Good luck with your planted tank. I love the challenge of underwater gardening and after years of fish keeping have finally succeeded. I doubt I will ever have a non-planted tank again. Steve.

Looks like a steal to me. I hope it's still there for you. Great size, and canister filters are great.
