RobMc Thanks VJM. My Betta, Angelo, is quite the king of the jungle in there - though he still enjoys pats on the head

VJM Absolutely beautiful! I have bettas too, and love to see them in heavily planted tanks that appropriately sized. Fantastic.

RobMc Some updated shots as the tank adjusts to the new light. I'm still not too hot on the color rendition:

Think I'm going to have to put angelo on a diet soon:

RobMc Greedy, it is actually made out of wood. If you're interested in the process, I have a build thread here

Adam, shamefully, in the last set of images the water is just at its weekly low point due to evaporation. Generally, I keep the water level about 3/4 of an inch below the rim. I've lost 2 amanos to higher fills than this.

AdamC13 barely made it through the first couple pages of ridiculousness but a very nice tank. Any reason the water level isn't higher? or is it just to prevent jumpers?

Greedy Very nice cube, the light very nice as well. Did you heat up that piece of acrylic to bend it over the tank?

RobMc It's grown out a bit since the last shots. Also I've built a 20W led light to replace the two cfls.

RobMc Quick update:

This tank has been ignored a bit more than I'd like and my WC/Fertilization schedule has dropped off. The betta has a touch of the fin-rot again due to a power outage a month ago. One of the ottos was trapped behind the filter sponge and passed. Fortunately the shrimp / pygmy cories had him cleaned up and gone within 24 hours.

The tank has been trimmed a few more times. Due to the lack of fertilization the ludwigia SP red has not been thriving.

A quick shot of the regrowth thus far. Doing a water change today and adding ferts - expecting a jump in growth over the next week.
