    Soooooooo excited...........My first large scale aquarium...Last time I had some fish was in Grade 3. Small 30cm tank.

    Made the mistake of putting the pet shop goldfish with my bday goldfish. They all got fin rot..... Lucky from all 5 got 2 through and they were later adopted by my Grandmother.

    @DarkStar1986 love the tank. Nice and deep. This year i will be looking to upgrade to a 1000 L + tank just for fun. Best of luck with the setup, shrimp and plants.
