swissian's 58 gallon

Having finally finished my education, I have the time to resurrect my old 58 gallon tank. Sadly, in the great move up North, I had to leave behind its stand. For the past 3.5 years, this poor tank has languished in the basement as all of its inhabitants, including fish I had had for many years, did not survive a 3 day drive despite preventative measures.

 

This is the tank in its algae infested glory 4 years ago:

It grew MTS very well:

Currently, I am completing the stand for it following hydrophte's raw industrial style.

Luckily, the swissian is short and so does not hit her head on the beams in this 200 year old basement.

 

Updates will be soon!
