I've been out of the hobby for about 15 years. I used to have a small nano, and my brother was the one with all the tanks.

I started scouring Craigslist and other mediums to find a used tank. I found this 40 breeder not too far from my home for $20.

So far I've removed the blue paint on the back, bought a stand that I painted gold, and had some dry rock shipped. I've been playing with the rock in my tank for about a month and just ordered what I need for cycling yesterday, so I figured it is time to start my first build thread! Yay!
