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
