So i'm going to be building a mini version of the 12g ADA pretty soon and i got a little bored today and decided to practice.

I was surprised but it came out pretty good. Its about 3/4 a gallon. My mini 12g will probably be around 3g or so.

Still have to weld the acrylic though.

What type of acrylic are you using to make this?
 
I'm not sure how you got the cuts so accurate. Looks REALLY good so far.

What were you planning to house in there after you weld it, and do the leak test?

I used a table saw and a miter saw to cut the acrylic. Then i sanded down the edges and torched polished them.

Not really sure, probably just some small plants and maybe some baby snails from my other tank.

I bet you could build a stand out of acrylic.
