Sleek1607's 36 gallon long

Well, I went to a garage sale and picked up a 36 gallon setup for $105, so
that's a 150 watt heater, a penguin 350 power filter, a gentle powerhead, and lights/hood/tank/stand. (and a red sea nano HOB for an extra $5) All for $105. Wow. So, I cracked it when I was washing it (previously used) and I was pretty bummed. I ended up going to the LFS and buying silicone as it wasn't a HUGE crack. It sits in my room, drying, and I am thinking up ideas for a scape/theme. I am considering a rainforest kinda thing, an iwagumi, a nature aquarium and a regular ol' planted tank. If anyone has their ideas please share them!

Jungle, and make it a riparium while you're at it!

Have you seen some of the ripariums on here? There are some really beautiful ones. Might be the safest thing too considering the crack. Do you have a picture of it?
