About Yourself: I have had many tanks over the years. Most where smallish. I decided to get a bigger tank so I bought a 5 foot tank. It housed some of the "Tank busters" for a while. I got bored with this as they are just show for my liking. Not a real challenge. So I decided to redo my whole setup. Had a new tank made and re did my stand and hood. Now it's a planted tank. More challenging and more satisfactory in my opinion.
