The stand for the 55 gallon aquarium turned out very well – unfortunately, the used aquarium I bought off Kijiji was way more scratched up than I had noticed. Over Christmas, Big Al’s had a sale so I bought a new one – which looks awesome. I also purchased a Hydor canister filter, and Eheim 150W heater.
The aquarium is up and running, and is currently stocked with:
- 6 siamese algae eaters
- 10 Black Tetras
- 27 Neon Tetras
- 10 Glowlight Tetras
- 3 bundles of Vallisneria spiralis
- 2 bundles of Hygrophila corymbosa
