diy WABI tank...


so i'm trying to make one of these...


and am beginning to research the how to's.

anyone have any personal experience making nano tanks and have some valuable tips for me? i can't imagine it being too difficult for a nano tank like this.

additionally, this may be a long shot but a member on this forum, i believe from out of country had a DIY tank. i think it was a nano. it was a beautifully made tank and scape! long shot but anyone have the page to that journal saved in a bookmark? he may have been from....denmark? or sweden? i can't remember!

haha no i borrowed the photo from the original guy's work.
he got it from japan...not surprised. i've been searching a lot of places and have come up dry.

the glasscage site does carry the rimmed version but their tanks are $25 while the drop off fee, in white plains is like $36. didn't make sense for me to buy that with time and toll..might as well get the 45F.

i'm gonna check out some shops in SOHO today since it's my day off, maybe lucky will be on my side. if not i may order this: http://www.truaqua.com/high-clarity-...um-hca-12.html and just fill it half way for what im looking.
