Hi the grey intank device is just a Eheim 350 Surface skimmer so not a filter, I am running a external canister filter.

I had 12+ in mines once. Good filtration and they should be okay because they don't get overly large that's the plus about them.

thump421 I have 18 cpds in my 12 long with 4 Ottos and no shrinp (yet) they've been happy and healthy for a few months now but I do think I'm pushing the overstocked line. I do have quite a bit of filtration and never miss a weekly water change though.

Kingtriton92 Finally got my Mr Aqua scaped and flooded. After taking this picture, I made the sandbar divider more of a triangle to give a feel of a vanishing point. I used water and filter media from my 29 gallon to do an instant cycle. Went with the Planted + light. So far I'm pretty happy with it. Now to be patient and wait for the plants to grow.

fietsenrex not really a 12G but close enough for me :P (bit smaller than a 60P)

Kingtriton92 Just picked one up yesterday and can't wait to start playing with hardscape placement tonight/ this weekend. Such an elegant looking tank. Anyone using pendant style lights for these tanks? Was thinking Kesil but I am worried the shallow dimensions would mean to much light. Also, how efficient is co2 in such a shallow tank?

Did you make that stand yourself? Also how are the Lily Pipes working for you?

I certainly didn't. Haha. I'm only using a glass outflow. It does a decent job mellowing out my intense filter, but it gets covered in algae easily and is a bit too big.
