    hi there every one. i was looking for mt old thread but it looks like a never started one of my tank on masa! o well this gives me the oppurunity take show u from start to where i am. i was into marines in grade 7, (now in grade 9). my first tank was a little 2ft. i then moved on to a three foot. this tank did really well, but i could not move on to more challenging fish due to size of tank. i then saved up the money to start i tank 1.6m x 0.6m x 0.6m.
