My tank after 3 years

I just came across some pictures of my tank from about 3 years ago and just wanted to post of some before and after pictures.

Tank on 7-11-04


Tank as it is right now.

The tank started out a lot different. FOWLR and an XP3 pump for filtration and a power head or two.


Now I have a 20gallon sump with large skimmer, fuge, and only 2 larger power heads with great flow. All of my water parameters are also perfect now and don't fluctuate like they used to. It just seems like time is one of the best things for a tank.

I think as the tank ages the owner gets much wiser. Looking very nice.
