The Saltwater Aquarium (Introduction Thread)

So a long time ago my wife had purchased the wrong substrate for her fish tank. It turned out to be live sand for saltwater aquariums. I said put it aside maybe I will some day have my own fish tank and that will help. Well years and years went by and sombody had mentioned the tank size for our Boa seemed small. So we looked at upgrading his tank to a larger size. Once we did that we suddenly had a 55 gallon tank laying around and suddenly this bag of sand turned up again. So with a little arm twisting i started looking into it.

So I found out that my local DMV was open on Saturday. I decided I wanted to get the paperwork rolling before i got too much deeper. I got to the DMV and after about 2 hours walked away being told that they could do a VIN verification at the DMV if i brought the bike in. I looked at the paperwork and it said it needed to go to CHP because it was a Salvage but because it was restored i figured the paperwork was off and what the person told me was true. I rented a trailer and put the bike back together and loaded it up.

So I will start off with back in my heyday I would browse Craig's List and shoot out some low ball offers on things that look interesting.
