Coming very late to the discussion...how goes the tank?
I've had a 4' 55gal tank for about 6 years now, upgraded from a 29 when my tiger oscars had to start 3-point maneuvers just to turn around. I built
the wooden stand myself out of 4x4 posts and 2x4 frames. The thing's so sturdy it could withstand a tornado. The oscars have since died, and I've
converted the tank into something much more community-oriented. I have a few gouramis, a few rainbow sharks, and several tiger barbs, with a pleco
and Chinese algae eater working on the cleanup crew.
I'm guessing you spent more than your $200 budget on setup? That's always the most expensive part, but you've got a kicka$$ filter which is going
to last you a long time.
BTW, I do know what a gumbo pot is...lol
