3 Tank Stand. 20l, 15, & 5

Last year my wife told me no fish tank so like any man i went out and bought a 15 gallon and set it up. Started out with 7 zebra danios, blue dwarf gourami, and 1 mystery snail. It was a start. Then i started googling. And changed it up a bit with some live plants and a beamswork hi pent light.

Now my wife liked it alot but when MTS hit i couldnt have another because of the room they take up. So my plan started. A new stand to keep it all in one area. So i went to home depot for some wood. And started building off the top on my head.

That sure is a nice looking stand considering it was "built off the top of your head".

Well a little update. Bottom tank was starting to leak a little bit and current sent me a whole kit to replace it. I set it up on my desk bc it was kind of a pain to do waterchanges laying on the ground.

The 20l and 15 are still running strong even with the lack of maintenace from having another child. The 15 had 4 puffers up until last week. Now there is only three so i think there was a fight. 2 females and 1 male left.

Started dosing some ferts bc it seems the dirt isnt providing it anymore.

The bottom tank with the puffers is getting a good amont of bga im hoping the ferts and changing the flow of the spray bar fixes it.

The curret 5 gallon was a little to tall at 12" high. If i ever get a 10" cube it would be perfect on the bottom. But stand is way overbuilt the other day my 4 year old was climbing up on it when i wasnt looking. Good thing i have it attached to the wall.
