My new second-hand fish tank

My new second-hand fish tank

Picked up this 4 foot tank the other day out of the classifieds.  Now I just have to learn how to maintain it!

They're easy to look after and have plenty of character.
Nice tank - just remember to change at least a quarter of the water every few weeks.

With a tank that size!

I would highly recommend a Cannister Filter, if you get one get a S4000 series. They shoot out 400ltrs an hour and great for aquariums at that size. If your planning to keep plants aswell then its worth to have a Cannister Filter. 


I just thought this might help you out.
