Fishy Fishy Fishy!

About two years ago an opportunity came up for me to purchase a large fish tank, I had dabbled with small ones and always was interested in pushing for something bigger and better. After discussing it with the AdrenalineRadio.com board members we agreed the best place for the new tank would be in the lobby.
Original Stand: Had three layers of blue paint.
Original Tank: Three walls of the tank were originally covered with a black background that
