    This is my first attempt at a "real tank". All my other tanks have either been nano/pico or used stuff. Ive been SLOWLY finding out with this hobby that while nothing at all is wrong with used/cheap equipment. it is better in the long run to save up and spend the dough on the more "well known" stuff. So.....ive saving and saving and saving and here I go.... MVIMG_20180201_120904.jpg

    Tank is in great shape. coming from southern Cali to NJ was a bit nerve racking. my only gripe is that the stand had ZERO instructions. only thing i could find online was for the Versa I. there were a few differences but not bad enough where i couldn't figure it out.
