New tank! I'm so excited!

Who knew that a spontaneous trip to Goodwill could make me so happy? I found a 5 gal. rectangular tank there for $4. My poor snail has been living in a 2 gal. bowl since the betta kicked him out of the 5 gal. betta tank. Now Mr. Snail has a tank of his own. And I even have a filter for it! Woo hoo!

Now to go test it for leaks......

well done for grabbing a bargain. :)
any chance of pics when it's up and running ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Sure thing!

After 10 mins., it's still leak free. A good start.

Now I need to do a DIY cover. It didn't come with one. Any ideas anyone? Gotta be easy, real easy.
