My $10 Tank.

Everything you see in the pictures, except the new filter and log w/ flowers ,I got for ten dollars at the local swap meet . It just needed some elbow grease. A little calcium deposits on the top, but not bad at all.




tank 10 gal
20 pounds of gravel(I only used about half)
Air pump and stone with air line
under gravel filter(didn't use)
4 slabs of rock
5" long piece of petrified wood
three plants
Aquarium top
Q.C. sticker says 2005
------------
about $25 New stuff i put on.

Aqua-Tech 5-15 power filter
new light bulbs
small log with imitation flowers


This will soon be my baby Convict tank.

Wow that's a pretty good deal! I think that's the same tank I have and I bought it for 30 or 40 bucks at Walmart for the tank by itself. It's a really cute setup too. :D

I love those hoods for 10 gallons because you can put like 30 watts in them if you get CFL's and then you can have a nice planted tank too.

Yup, you are right.Well, the tank has finally completed cycling. The water temp was constant @ 73 degrees with no heater.I took the first set of pictures last night. Today I stopped @ my LFS and gots me a brand new heater. Now I have one of my pleco's & Negro-the $2 convict in there breaking it in.Here are the most resent pics (with the heater-just 4 u Flashygrrl!!):D



Thanks for all your comments.I appreciate it!!
