Wow! What a journey. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been met with challenges along the way in fishkeeping. Seems like once one problem is fixed, you're introduced to an entirely different problem. haha

At least the hobby is entertaining and I enjoy the challenge. It appears that you do, too. ;]

The tank, prior to algae breakout looks fantastic. I hope you keep with it and update us soon. It might be a trying journey, but it's rewarding when things do go well.
