    You know - I am still debating on the 28G Nanocube or a bigger tank. I know I wil lget bored of the Nanocube eventually since it can only house maybe 2-3 small fish and a few corals. I confirmed the electrical issue will cost allot to do and its probably out of the question. With a TV, DVD...

    OK - I have made up my mind. I am going to resurrect the 58G tank. I tried to sell it and I heard every story in the book why people cant buy it after they agreed to. It has to be a sign. Plus I have most of everything so it wont cost nearly as much as a larger new tank. SO! Here is what I...
