Picture of your first tank?

I was looking through an old photo album and found a picture of my very first tank, circa 1977. It got me wondering if anyone else has old pictures of their first set up?

This pic looks like I posed the fish care book and their food, along with the beat-up fishbowl housing my swordtail fry. Wish I had more of these pics!

That's a super cool picture, I love it! You posed everything very nicely! My first tank is my current one so it doesn't really count.

No pics of mine/my mom's and mine, was probably a 29Tall and a 10G to hold all the Guppies. I do have a couple stones which were in that tank back around 1975. Underground filter natural small river gravel and plastic plants, though I believe we had a Banana plant and some other kind. I think the Banana plant had a flower .....and after thinking about it one other flower from something else. Fun memories, my aunt had a huge tank with Angels and something else, and Oscar in a different tank. When I was 2-3 I had a soft shell turtle in a little low kinda octagon bowl with a stone in the middle. Now that was a very long time ago, haha.

It's a word picture.

Here's my first 135 in my second apartment[second floor] back around 1985...
Back when fish were legal and keepers were DUMB!

200+ goldfish a week and I was still scared to put my hand/arm in with Mr.S..
Friends used to show up with a dozen goldfish if they wanted to see them eat!

This is Walter, 1983? Those 2 goldfish were feeder size when I got them. They were his buddies, he only ate snails. 35g Hex with under gravel filter. I surprised anything survived in that tank knowing what I do now. Click image for larger version

He was so full of personality.

This is back in the mid 70's. I was in 7th grade. My stepmom raised angel fish, snails and algae. Click image for larger version
