Default 20l Iwagumi internal sump *11/23/2012*

how the tank sits as of 11/23/2012

This is going to be not only my first iwagumi but also my first ever sump build. Now given that this isn’t exactly a sump in the sense that it is below the tank but this filter will combine the larger filtration of a sump with the ability to hide the equipment and still keep the reliability of a fully enclosed tank. Im starting off with a standard 20 long from petco and 60 pounds of eco complete. My plan is to do this build with nothing but HC and Seiryu Stone. This is finals week for me and this is kind of my way of staying sane in-between the constant studying. That being said im going to let my pictures do the talking.
Tank and gravel right after petco

Here are the edges of the tank after removing glue

The edges post sanding

Here you can kind of see what the idea is going to be for the filter unfortunately they cut the wrong dimensions so back to the glass cutter to get the correct piece
