I finally got it!

I currently have in my possession, my 150 gallon aquarium! I took pics to share, but I can't find my cable to upload it to the computer anywhere, I'll hopefully have pics up later tonight when I get off work around midnight. I got the tank, stand, lights, and heaters/chemicals for $300!

The tank looks to be in great condition, I am probably going to fill it up in the kitchen for a couple days just to make sure there are no leaks, then I'll set it up in the living room where it's going and begin cycling!

I did my first full water change today......MY GOD! Now I have found the 1 downside to the 150....


How do some of you guys with even bigger tanks do your water changes? I used a rubber-maid container and marked it off in 10 gallon increments, but WHEW! :P
