Some of the links to the photos were missing in my last tank journal, so I thought I'd bring them back in this thread.

Background Information:
This tank has been running for about 4-5 years now. I currently have two powerbeads to keep the water moving, and have a Fluval FX5 and Rena XP3 keeping the water clean. The tank came with aragonite sugar sand, but I eventually switched to pool filter sand after getting tired of scooping cupfuls of aragonite from the bottom of my filters. Lighting is a DIY setup with LED strip lights bought online.

Staying consistent with my previous journal, I'll post a few photos from previous years. Current information and photos can be found from post #6 onwards.

This is one of the reasons I miss my big tank. Those are some of my favorite haps. Need space to keep those kind of open water fish. Good job!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. Most of my fish are from Spencer Jack in Winnipeg and Wet Spot Tropical fish in Portland, OR. The rest are local pet store finds and from other members.
