So silicone setup enough that I could trim the excess off with a razor, the seams are looking clean and free of bubbles or gaps. just waiting 24 hours so I can start the leak test!!






Waiting is the worst!

Waiting is definitely the worst. Looks like you did a really nice job on those seams.

Also I suddenly want a sandwich.

I saw bacon and had to look, love the tank and can't wait to see it come together.
Your betta will love the horizontal swimming space.

Yea considering his current home is a 2.5 gallon petco tank.

My biggest things in my head right now is, how to scape it and how to do the lighting and for that matter what lighting!

LED is a must, looking at that small one from aquatraders, however I was looking at making a small portion of it out if the water, if I do that I need to be able to suspend it.... Which really I could get some more glass and make a suspension arm..

Well done, congrats on giving it a shot. I would wait a little longer than a couple of days to water test but that is just me. If the silicone is all clear then it should be good to go. Good luck on the water test.
