    Well, after much research and going back and forth... I decided to do freshwater with this tank. Mainly because it's much easier and more tolerant of less than optimal care. A better choice for my office. And it was something different than I'm used to.

    Today I picked up my first fish. Two wag-tail mollys, a female beta, and some long bottom feeder fish of which i can't remember the name. But he's cool.
    I'm going to get more live plants. I saw some nice bright green grass and some fern looking stuff that I want to get.

    I would boo you on your decision, but it seems like maintanence @ the office would be a pain in the ass. You should hit up RyanG he has tons of planted tank experience. He could give you some advice I'm sure.

    How exactly does the tank work? They look enclosed on all sides. Is this true? Where does o2 come from?

    lol @ david! :p

    Alexander, Fluval says it comes from the filter mounted on the back. :dunno:
    It spills into the aquarium under the cap.
    Under the cap is where the access hole is. You lift the cap to feed the fish or otherwise access the aquarium.

    The water cleared up nicely over the weekend and I got a couple more plants in the front. :)
