Antique Aquarium

Many many years ago B.M. (Before Marriage) I had an idea to create an aquarium out of an old television set. My first T.V. was a 1950-60's Hoffman with doors that would close to hide the T.V. I bought it at Deseret Industries and had my boyfriend (now husband) remove the "guts" so that it would operate just the way I wanted.
Today, we have a Sylvania (don't ask me what year) I think maybe late 50's. Jay has been nudging me to get the tank up and running again. So for the last few weeks I have been running water cycles in my aquarium. I have it up in our living room. It makes for a really fun conversation piece.

Hopefully in a few weeks it will be ready for fish.

(side note-this television is big enough for a ten gallon tank, right now, I have a smaller tank.)
