I spent some time at school yesterday. I cleaned up a little, but mostly I dreamed about my classroom aquarium. I stopped by Petco to get a 20 gallon long, because they’re half price right now. Half price!
But the 20 gallon tank looked kind of puny in the spot I plan to use, so I went back to Petco to get a 40 gallon breeder tank. Breeder tanks are shorter than regular tanks, so it would just fit under the bookshelf. There isn’t much clearance, but I think I can put the filter on the side of the tank instead of the back.
The biggest challenge is that there’s no sink in my classroom, so water changes will have to be done by bucket. I plan to have lots of plants and few fish. That should help keep the algae under control.
