Thank you! Loving this tank so far.

I got a hold of some nice driftwood that was sent to me as a RAOK from a guy on local facebook group. Amazing piece, making me want to do a scape already. Post pictures soon.

Imagine what you could do with a smaller tank

How does one de-rim a tank? I'd love to give it a go. I have a new 20L from the most recent $1/gallon sale I will be setting up soon.

It's a somewhat tedious process with a few razor blades. I start in the corners and do different parts. Ie - the front piece, then the little top piece, then the inside part. Slowly but surely... It will come.

Added a rock on the right... Should I leave it? Will look better when I get the background plants grown up behind it (sp green)

I think it looks more balanced now IMO. Tank looks great!

Yeah, agreed. Think I'm gonna remove some sand in that back right corner and plant some stems to balance even further.

Thank you both!

This is a very badass scape, one of the more original I have seen. Love how this and the other tank is displayed as well.

love your scape, like how you used sand on the nonplanted side.

Both of those are beautiful tanks, nice work! The addition of the rock on the right does look good.

Seeing the 20 long de-rimmed for the reef tank makes me wish I did that to mine before converting it.

Thank you Jacklyn!

Although I love it as well.. It is a pain to keep the sand free of black substrate though
