    All of the pieces and parts have finally come together, and today my tank is born. April 25, 2008. I started this project on February 1st, and I've learned a TON of stuff since then. I'm happy with what I have at the start, but I'm sure upgrades and changes will come in time. Here it is, in...

    My friend is big into fish and from spending so much time with him I've started to want to start my own tank. I would like to start with about a 30 gallon tank using salt water.
