    New to Me, 80gal

    A coworker of mine knew that I had and liked aquariums. One day his neighbor was tossing this 80gal tank out and picked it up for me. I built a stand and canopy. I also drill the back of the tank for overflows and a return. I then painted the back and bottom of the tank along with the inside of the stand. Next I stained the outside of the stand and hard plumed the tank. My plan is for a FOWLR, but we will see...

    Not a bad start at all. Stocking ideas?

    Not yet. Some people say don't add anything with the triggers. A couple of people have suggested wrasses. Still doing some research
