Thanks! I can't wait to build it! Only problem is I have a 90 gallon in my living room, a tank at work(a fluval spec now but will be that 20 long soon) and the 10g in my garage. I dont have any more room for another big tank. If someone local has a big tank and wants this done I would happily do it for the cost of supplies and beer.

mr2 It's around 3 gallons when full and I only have 2 danios getting daily water changes. They seem very happy but again, they will be exchanged for white clouds shortly. Again this was meant to be just a showcase of my grand plan to create a 6 foot river tank. I wanted to see if the fish would struggle and jump to get upstream like he does in my vid and see how well the river effect works. The most important thing I did learn was that I will need a big pump! This fountain pump barely cuts it.

I agree, it's gorgeous but it seems like there is less than 2 gallons of water in there.

mr2 This is how it works:

mr2 Thwt pic was when i first set it up. I had the same concern and moved the white clouds upstairs to my 90 shortly after that pic was taken. It currently has 2 danios only. The 2 white clouds will be going back in for the winter since they like cool temps and are better suited to the size of the tank. The danios will go upstairs to my 90g so they don't have it so bad don't worry. The tank is in my garage, the fish get a 50 percent water change with dehumidifier water almost daily. I use a drill pump for water changes so it's super easy, takes me 1 min to do a wc literally.

QQQUUUUAADDD That's what I was thinking. I think the zebra danios need more space.

mr2 Added vid as a link. Going to drop a bunch of pics of the stream tank at various stages.

mr2 Yeah sorry I was trying to get a video up but it won't upload to photo bucket or YouTube for some reason, and I can't get it onto my iPad from my phone.
