I actually have trimmings (just about everything in the tank was just trimmed, if anyone has anything they'd like to trade, for any of my plants, please let me know?)

I have one of these on order so I'll be posting a journal in the coming months

One question, I'm building a stand now for it but as I won't have the tank in front of me for a month or so I want to make sure I get the sizing right!

MarineDepot quotes the size as 35.4 x 8.3 x 9.4 in. Just want to confirm with a tank owner that building the stand for 36" length will fit without any spillage.

Also I'm assuming 8.3in is the width of the tank. I'm planning on an ADA-type stand but worry at 30" or so height it will be too tipsy. I made my last stand for a 20L out of 2x4s and it is a tank but I'm planning on just using 3/4" plywood for this stand.
I saw another poster bolted his to a wall, but I'm in an apartment so don't want to risk that!
I'm thinking to make the stand a bit wider (say 1ft deep) to alleviate some of this concern, anyone have suggestions on sizing? I'd rather not get any longer than 3ft.

I wish I had some nice rare plants like the other guys from Hawaii to show. Maybe in another lifetime of this tank.

Those bright red eyed CBS looks beautiful. Perhaps they got those eyes from CRS?

Your tank is equally amazing. Do you have any FTS of it?

1,000th post? Lucky you! Now you will have very good karma for your 12L

Don't change the way it looks, it looks lovely the way it is. That is a FTS but I wanna see the FULL FTS with the lights, filters, everything

i measured mine (its a gla brand though) and its 35.75 inches. I'm confused when you say wider? do you mean left to right or front to back? If I were to make my stand, I'd make it an extra foot when viewing front to back for all the trimming tools and small containers you're bound to have lol. of course, I'd make my stand at least 40inches tall hope that helped

I can't compete with half of these 12Ler's but here is mine.

Updated pic, hoping to wrap some moss on the branches soon as I get some fishing line, any special brand recommend?
