Introduction

Bought this Tank used and the previous owner had it running for about a year. When I got it, it was in bad shape. It was overrun with a severe snail problem, the plants weren't well positioned and it had a lot of cyanobacteria.

I had been away from the hobby for approximately 5 years and this tank I will use to experiment and get my feet and arms wet as I begin a foray back into my hobby.
