12G Club: Got a 12 GalloN RimlesS or wanna get 1? PoSt/SeE HeRe!



Featured is J&H's 12G Long

12 Gallon Long Rimless Club
(Mr. Aqua or GLA)

Hi! As I have discussed with a few fellow members with 12 gallon long tanks, it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to just 12 gallon long tanks. Its basically a thread dedicated to our small 12G long community in hopes of keeping it always exciting and drawing new interests everyday. This thread is open for ideas, questions, suggestions, etc. as a whole. Whether you already have a 12G long, looking for ideas how to design it, or simply thinking to get one, I want this thread and its members to help you in whichever way possible

Goals:
* Have your very own community focusing on 12G longs.
* Learn, inspire, share & support (Remember it as L.I.S.S).
* Give RAOK(s) from your very own 12G tank(s) for newcomers or to those in need when you have extra.
* Have fun! This is what it is all about

Your Support Needed!: Link to our club by adding the pre-setup link below to your signature box. Just copy & paste to your signature box.

Mine has been planted for a while but only flooded for a day, but here are a couple shots:



It's still just growing in, as you can see.

E. parkeri is beginning to flower:



Feel free to take a look around the journal for highlights of my DIYing and such. Spray bar, lighting stands, adding cooling fans sometime next week, yadda yadda.

These are really great tanks. Maybe my favorite.

I am noticing a lack of fish. Is this a bad size for fish? I would think that it being so long it would be perfect for schooling fish.

It's used by a lot of shrimpers as a show tank because it's got a ton of surface area.

But search the forum and you'll find several people who keep fish in them.

Are there dead spots positioning the spray bar to spray width wise instead of length wise?

Here's mine. The pic is about 6 weeks old, but not much has changed since. I started this tank maybe 5-6 months ago. The biggest challenge has been finding small, interesting fish to stock it with. The next biggest challenge is keeping them out of my cat's mouth. :p

Great thread. I really want one of these but have no where to put it. I am following many of these journals. If only I was normal and didn't have a 24 channel mixing board on my desk, among other things lol.

Great thread. These are one of my favorite tanks. I've wanted one for a long time now. Maybe this inspiration will finally make me buy one.

Absolutely gorgeous plants. What sp. of Erios are they? You must have RO water and Co2 in this tank? Very inspiring.. I see you have some really nice Bucephalandras there too
