During Lockdown I had 20 different Aquariums

During Lockdown I had 20 different Aquariums

In May 2019, I redecorated my home and decided to set up an aquarium that had been in storage for a decade as it would look nice. However a few months later in February 2020, the pandemic struck, and I soon realized that many people were selling their aquarium setups on Facebook at cheap prices.

This presented a perfect opportunity to upgrade to a larger and superior aquarium. I sold some of my own equipment while retaining select components such as a better heater or pump.
