Thanks for the suggestion. I'll be searching this one later today. Can't wait to get this tank going

Jumpers and cats! Anyone had luck with a cover? I tried a 1/4" plexiglass but it warps quickly and I have to flip it over every week or so. I would like to have rectangular cut-outs on the back for 2 HOB filters and a small drilled hole in the middle front for feeding and ferts. Don't know if custom cut glass would be possible (or affordable). Lexan claims not to warp - anyone tried it?

Lexan will work fine. I used lexan to build the entire sump and cover for my 72 gallon bowfront reef tank and never had a problem with it. Extremely tough stuff.

How cow, that's cool! I always love the look of the oversized driftwood like that, but have never been able to pull it off. Nice job. Cute shrimp pics too.

I know I would like to have an electronic solenoid (work and college both full time) so I'm not always home to shut off/turn on when needed so lights and CO2 would need to be on timers. I have searched and found a few things. The 24oz paintball tanks have intrigued me with their compact design as I hope to keep this tank on a narrow cabinet that doesn't offer alot of storage.
I just got my first co2 setup and it's only been running for a few days, but I like it so far. It's the GLA Atomic Paintball V2. You can see what it looks like on a 20oz co2 tank in my picture.

I want to get a 12 gallon rimless, but where should I purchase? The only place I've seen it for sale is Marine Depot, is that the cheapest?

Thanks...

Went to the LFS today to pick up a light for my 2.5g. Out of stock.

What came home with me instead? You guessed it, a 12g long. It was too pretty to leave there.

I just started with planted tanks, and my current set-ups are teaching me a lot (the hard way). Once I have them running right, I will reward myself by setting this sweet baby up.

This thread totally gave me grabby hands for a 12g long.

Haha, Welcome to the club! We should really change the name of this thread to 12G Trap Club.

what length atomic diffuser do you run? I went ahead and purchased the aquatek mini but I still don't have my tank in and I'm not sure what length diffuser would be appropriate. Not to mention GLA is out of stock on alot of the options anyways.

Talking start of something great

well after spending a boatload of money, things are starting to arrive.

So far, the tank and the light are up on the desk.

The original plan

TANK: Mr. Aqua 12 Gal Long
SUBSTRATE: Eco-Complete Substrate Fluval Stratum Top Layer ADA Aquasoil Amazonia - 9 Liters
LIGHT: Catalina Aquarium T5 Solar 2 Bulb Catalina Aquarium T5 Solar 1 Bulb
FILTRATION: Fluval 106 Fluval 206

MISC: Sieryu Stones or Driftwood. Maybe both. Still thinking it through. Wound up placing an order with PC1 but still waiting on a reply/tracking number. From what i read, he is very slow to respond
