A couple of weeks ago I found a 27 gallon square tank that I wanted to buy and set up a Tiger Barb species tank.

After further research, I have learned that the tank was too small. I looked around and found a tank that would be suitable for the fish and that would look good in my living room.

I decided to buy another 36 gallon bow front identical to my community tank. My daughter and I went to Petsmart and made the purchase.

We decided on black substrate and a jagged rock wall background. We then picked out dual Aquaclear 50 filters. Then we added a 200 watt heater.
