Description – Ten years old and still going strong. Was previously home to my Discus. After almost 20 years with Discus, I decided to use this aquarium to upgrade my Marine 90 litre nano. Space wouldn’t allow two tanks of this size. The attached photos are perhaps not the best quality and typically the fish didn’t pose, they hid. I like to think that this aquarium shows that marines needn’t cost £1000′s to set up.
