    New Beginning - SCAPE ROCKS!

    Good morning SCAPE! I hope this message finds you well. My name is A.B and a long time hobbyist. I can stare at a planted tank for long hours - it is my way to destress and helps me to relax. I stopped and raised a family and my eldest now is 10 years old. I didn’t know I was going to get started with this hobby again until I found what is laying on a curb. I thought to myself is this the new beginning again? Yes or no, yes or no, yes or no, I chose to rescue this tank which otherwise will end up in a landfill somewhere. I would like to share my tank build and hopefully will receive good advise and meet my fellow hobbyist!


    Day 14 - I would like to thank everybody in SCAPE who fulfilled my tank (heart) with joy! Thank you for bringing me back in the game as fast as 2 weeks. Special Thanks to, no particular order:

    Nice find, looks like a 40 or 50 gal. What are your plans, do you have a scape in mind already? Welcome to Scape best thing now is to attend the meeting on July 21st to help with building this tank out.

    Any livestock ideas?
    You can always measure the tank and find out the gallons by using google
    You can pick my brain any day!
    Welcome back to the greener side of things

    Welcome back A.B.!

    Definitely try to attend the upcoming meet. A lot of great super deals to get you started back on the hobby at fractions of the $$$!

    Awesome find!

    If you get the tank up and running by time of meet, let me know. I can provide you with some trimmings to get you back in the game. Free.
