Fish Tank

Update

At some point around 09/2009, we pretty much let this tank pretty much go downhill. Lost some fish, had a huge algae bloom we could never get under control, and somewhat lost interest in it. Bought a used 33 gallon tank from a friend, set it up, and migrated the surviving fish over. This tank sat half-filled until 2010/03/07, when I removed the water, rocks, and the algae that was starting to exhibit signs of sentience. We'll probably set this one up again since we have everything we need except an air pump.
