Impulse Buy!
How would this work for shrimp 30X12.5X6

That's a really cool tank. Where did you get it?

Merth 01-19-2013 10:34 PM

it came from a reptile show custom size apparently and has the screen top

It'll work really well.

It's typically referred to as a "Half 29" (even though it's really half of a 20L). You can pick them up from Glass Cages and occasionally at pet stores that cater to the reefing community.

You may want to check the joints and resilicone if needed. I bought a 20L reptile tank new and I had to resilicone to keep from leaking. No biggie. But since it was never meant to hold water, I had to make sure it now would.

Awesome Find!

If I dont just turn around and resell it I definitely will leak test although silicone looks perfect.

I wish I had that sweet tank!

You can build one any dimensions you like and it cost 4 times less than buying one retail or custom.

So how much can this thing hold? Because it sure looks like it can hold more than 20-gallons.
