Description: My first tank. Its been going about six months now had some problems in the beginning but I worked them out. This is a 30 gallon fresh water Barb tank. I have a Aqua Clear 70 filter with active carbon filter media, an Aqua Clear 30 air pump with in-line regulation valve powering two air stones, a 20 watt white light and a Eheim heater.
Advice: My advice at this time is novice at best, I would just say read, read, read you can never have enough information before you make a purchase, and think big it's only been six months and I wish I started off much bigger.

Fish Kept: Tiger, Rosy, Tinfoil, and Albino Barbs and one Pleco
Corals/Plants: All Fake
Tank Size: 30 gallons
