The 30 gallon tank was my second aquarium. The tank and stand were about three years old when I purchased it after seeing an add in a local paper. It came with thirteen fish, gravel, air pumps/stones, decor, and two filters (neither of which were being used). I got all of this for $50.00
Water changes were never done and there was no hearter; the only thing that was keeping the fish alive was pure luck.
So far I've switched out the gravel with one that is black and added a few extra rocks. I'm using a 100w Visa-therm Stealth heater and the two filters that came with it (after getting new filter media).
Current fish include:
- one gold gourami
- two angelfish
- one black skirt tetras (more coming soon)
