When I got it, it had a broken ballast and had been running with only one light for over 6 months at my friends house. He had given up on the tank and just stopped doing water changes, he only added top off. The first time I saw it the sides had so much algae on them that I could not even see into the tank. It took me about a months worth of scrubbing and partial water changes every 3 days to get it clean.
