Corals/Plants: Thin Val, Crypts, Lilaeopsis, Banana Lillies
Tank Size: 55 gallons

Fish Kept: Domestic: (store bought- only I didn't buy any of my fish. friends and family gave these to me) huge frontosa- named "big head todd", peacock bass, livingstoni, green severum, columbian shark, channel cat, 3 plecos, managuense, yellow lab, creamcycle chiclid. Wild Caught: (right out of local streams of va beach! just remember to acclamate the wild fish first.) white pearch, 2 croppy, blue gill, warmouth,
Corals/Plants: I tried live plants... way too much work for a large tank. Unless you like constant upkeep. I have all fake plants- but instead of buying them for a million dollars from a store. I went to a craft store and bought a bunch of fake plants. I cut them up and used glue gun to glue lava rocks to the bottoms. Use non toxic glue gun sticks.
Tank Size: 150 gallons
Advice: Do it. You'll learn alot!! Research everything you do before you do it!! I started from a couple pieces of glass and wood and made something great out of it. AND it all costed way less than if I had bought it all new. To see a final finished product that is beautiful and functional- It's well worth the time. All in all it's a great do it yourself project- a large do it yourself project. Especially when you live in an apartment complex and have to do alot of the construction your apartment and outside on a small slab. Would have been much easier in a garage. However, I am very happy with the results. It's something that fools everyone who looks at it and asks where I got it. I reply "Well... I made it. Yeah, the tank too."
