SeaHorse's latest...
So I acquired this tank... it was sitting on my son's side porch for months. College students moved out and left it so I took it home. Some of you heard me talk about the tank at the top of the driveway that Hubby buried in a snow bank with the snow blower. I didn't manage to get it cleaned out before the first snow fall in November and it sat there for a very long time. Well according to the algae green water it seems to be holding water. Yes those are cigarette butts in there.

Cleaned it out with vinegar and scrubbed it too with a scrubby. It's up on it's end out in a rain storm now. But I measured it and SCORE! It's 36 x 12.5 x 18.25 so it's a 35 Gallon. That's big enough to go on my L shaped desk in my office and try either Pea Puffers or maybe.... my very first SW tank. Gasp. So excited.

I could do like.... 6? or what is the next sized Puffer I could consider? Obviously it needs to be a breed specific tank right? Oh, and it will be fully live planted all the way if I go FW. I gave one VT Betta a 45 Tall once. He loved it, just like yours liked the 125G!!

If you're willing to go brackish, there are some cool puffers out there. I'm not really familiar with brackish fish, though I've watched a few puffers. They seem very interesting - very pet like. I think it's their slow deliberate movement and big eyes, makes them look like theyre thinking. Perhaps make it a specimen tank.

Now that it's been out in the rain... it needs cleaning all over again. Not sure what to do next with it!! Let's see if this will work...

Room for expansion?

I'm not sure what to do with it yet... It needs a top, filter, lights... everything... the budget isn't there right now. I DO have a spot cleared for it in my office tho. :lol:
There's a BIG community garage sale coming up in 3 weeks... gonna go shopping for other people's junk. :lol:
