another new but used tank

this morning i went look at and bought a used 125gal. 50 dollars for the tank filter and glass canopy. i trash all the gravel and plastic plants that came with it. they told me they had this tank for about 6 years and couldn't keep anything alive in it. well i wonder why, it was so dirty i can't even see through the glass. the gravel had so much waste in it, it looked like a sewige plant. but anyway i plan on cleaning it up and filling it with some discus. maybe after i set it all up and the cycle is complete all add maybe 6-8 of them and hopefully a few of them will pair off.



TANKS:
75 gallon (x2)
55 gallon (grow tank)
29 gallon (quarantine tank)

Fish:
Koi Colored Veil Angels (breeding pair)
Silver Diamond Angels (1 male)
Red turquoise Discus (male and female)
Powder Blue Gourami
Clown Pleco
Common Pleco
Red-Tailed Shark
Stripped Raphael Catfish
Chinese Algae Eater

niceee congratulations!!! From that aspect you gotta love it when people can't take care of their tanks and get rid of them.
Can't wait to see it set up and planted

What a sweet deal. Congrats.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
