That piece looked like the ship from Thor 2

Thats a beautiful piece. Looking forward seeing the tank grow!

somewhatshocked AquaTop also has some rectangle tanks that are high-clarity - definitely give them a look on the site.

Have finally started playing more with the scape of this bowfront and believe I'm nearly settled on something. Hope to photograph it and get it planted ASAP! The move really zapped me for energy and I'm just now getting caught back up.

BillV thanks Jake, I am interested in the Euro style, possibly high clarity tanks. It would be for my new office so I still have a couple of weeks to see what might fit. Its just that their price was amazing, but being on clearance makes me wonder why. I like a panoramic view of a rectangular tank over a cube, I have an Ebi at home and while I like it I wish it were longer. I was liking the Mr Aqua bookcase tanks for their length.

somewhatshocked Most all-in-one tanks are a bad idea. I'd say those aren't a great deal. The high-clarity and bowfronts are great, though.

My philosophy: buy exactly what you want. Don't buy half of what you want while compromising over $20-$30. That's what makes this hobby so great - the waiting period. Wait til you find exactly what you want and you'll be happier with the end product.

BillV Have you seen the nano tanks of their in the clearance section? A 6.6 gallon and 14 gallon, $24 and $44 shipped? I was thinking those might be nice too, and you could probably run the finnex px360 or other filter with it. Any thoughts?
11-04-2013 05:30 PM
somewhatshocked No, using that fixture on a 30cm cube.

It could work on this tank but isn't ideal when it comes to spread.
11-04-2013 05:27 PM
BillV Any progress on this tank Jake? I'm interested in this size or the 14 gallon myself. Probably the 8 for my office. Are you going to use the truaqua light? I see those are $50 righ tnow, would 1 suffice for low to medium plants (probably no CO2)?

somewhatshocked Actually have a small mountain of Manzanita in the basement. Think I may be leaning toward some sort of rock scape if I can't find the perfect stump, though.

Can't wait to get this thing going.

Bserve Hey do u want any manzy maybe? The wood usually scapes itself.
10-08-2013 10:07 PM
somewhatshocked Okay. Made a decision. Since this tank will be on the bottom of my rack, I think I'm going to use an AC30 for filtration instead of the Eheim. Will use it on a new 12" cube.

Slowly coming together!

oscarsx Great build!! Always nice seeing new projects.
10-05-2013 02:41 PM
CheyLillymama22 Oh yay. I've been really looking forward to seeing this tank go up
10-05-2013 01:19 PM
somewhatshocked Now that I'm in a new city, I'm finally setting this tank up.

Once I settle on a light fixture, that is...
08-20-2013 08:06 PM
somewhatshocked Yep, it's a common variety in pet shops in this neck of the woods. Not interested in that light color, though, Focused more on Malaysian driftwood or Manzanita stumps. I'll eventually find something, I'm sure.
