New to the forum

Hello everyone. My name is Caleb. I just bought my first fish tank for my sons 2nd birthday in June. It is a 100 Gallon used tank off of craigslist with a stand. They were moving and needed to get rid of it, I only paid $70! It's in fairly good shape, had some algae problems but got it all scrubbed off last night and in the process of getting the tank set up.

She also gave me a Penn-Plax Cascade Canister Filter 1000, but it has a broken piece so trying to figure that out rather than buy a whole new filter system (I posted in hardware so if any of you know what to do read my post please). And an Emperor 400 HOB filter.

I plan on Getting Two Oscars for the tank. One Tiger, and one Albino.

I'd love to do an Oscar tank if I ever get one that big I'd do the same thing
