Suprised with the ikea table holding as I bought one and cut it open it's chipboard around the sides but cardboard honeycomb in the middle lol

Great setup and great turf you have. Can I ask if the UV sterilizer help reduce hair algae?

Was this a standard Petco 20g long tank? Did you have to do anything special to de-rim it? I've heard the rim may cover up some nasty glass/silicone work.

It looks like a typical Aqueon or similar 20L. Derimming isn't hard, but it is time consuming - the silicone is often really bad.

I love this tank. I love the simplicity, and I love the new wood.
