Water weighs roughly 8lbs per gallon. So that's under 100 pounds.

The rest depends upon the substrate you use and any hardscape that's included.

nope not crazy at all! er...unless my ideas a bit crazy too

exactly the build i was contemplating. I have two on my table right now like that (empty) and as long as the glass is clean it would hard to see the panes of glass in between. i posted a pic 3 pages back of it set up like that. having a piecs of wood (or more) that actually went tank to tank as one piece would really make it look like one. you could also do it so you could keep say fish in one and shrimp in another. or two different types of CRS or whatever. OK maybe this idea is a little crazy haha.

yea i was thinking the same... that if done correctly it will flow from one to the next... and u dont have to worry about slopes or background plants taking over foreground area...

btw is anyone using lily pipes.. and if so what lily pipes fit that dont have to be custom modded to fit?

dont have them on yet but the cal aqua nano set fits well. both for 13mm.

EDIT. the do -aqua 13mm jet is amazing and will be what i use on the 12g. throws out a much stronger linear flow that would be well suited for these long tanks...also fits without modding

ya your right its not on there. nor is it on the site i got mine from (canada)

there's one on ADA's site thats similar, the nano ones. the jet i believe has a small taper at the end to concentrate/increase the flow. box says violet glass, model is JP-1 13mm. cost more than the tank though.....

Just got my 12 gallon long! So excited to start, this is my first foray into planted aquariums.

NeoShrimp: what type of plant are you using for the foreground?

I believe the only carpeting plant that would fall in that category would be M. Minuta.

HC, DHG and UG will require CO2 and fert. (dry or liquid) dosing to look perfect, otherwise they will look just ok.

for shrimp or for fish?
You can replace co2 with Seachem Excel dosing, but not with shrimps inside.

Let me know what you think of the evo light. This will be my first aquarium since I was 10...
I use the ML double bright 36 (without bending extentions) and have 2 Aqua Clear 30 HOBs installed without issue. I cut out the rear corners of the 1/4" plexiglass cover and use the openings (just in front of the filters) for feeding and dosing. It works great as the food and ferts are immediately dispersed using filter flow. The fish gang up by the filter when it is feeding time and chase after the floating pellets like crazy.

I have done the same also but this is a long time ago when I first started the hobby... I was able to gro the hc in extremely high lighting lots of water changes and a good amount of fish in the tank but I missed one week water change and algae grew really quick and took over and it was hard to recover from that state so I gave up
