Description: this is a hand me down from a guy who kept snakes in it. It was too big for his second story apartent so I inherited it. It is 150 gallon, 18 in. deep by 29 in. tall, by 72 in. wide. it started off as salt water but I didn't have the time to keep the chemistry up so I converted to fresh water. My lighting is two double filiment 36 in. flouerecent with dayglow tubes. . The air pump is a Tetra whisper 100 with two tubes to 14 in. spounge tube bubblers. It is filtered with a Rena Filstar xp3 mechanical and biological system which has proven it's self well worth the price.
Advice: never lose faith, there are no problems you will encounter that your local pet shop people can't help you with.
Fish Kept: albino oscar, red oscar, jack dempseys, jellybean parrot. and placos
Corals/Plants: I haven't started a co2 system as yet so the plants are artificial.
Tank Size: 150 gallons
Quote: I don't really have one that can be put on the internet.
About Yourself: I retired from the navy in 1997, thus the love for the water. I started the tank to keep me busy in my off time but now I can't imagine my home without an aquarium in it.
