All those extra pieces of glass that came with the tank to be used as dividers. They can be easily cut to size and if need be, siliconed together.

Funny that you bring that up! I'm planning on building a OTS "on the side" vice HOB custom filter for my "5B". Pics to follow.

Not a bad idea...if those pieces weren't smashed in transport, too. LOL

I had to get my tank's cycling process going, so put together a rough scape using what I had on hand. Has a tree root effect happening that I think I'll keep, but I need more to go in this tank. Just xmas moss and a marimo ball for now, need more Wood/Moss! Here she is.



For reference, this picture was taken with the tank lit by a 13 watt CFL 6500k. I posted a picture further down with it lit by LED.

the addiction continues...

Dang!

My next suggestion: go to a Goodwill or dollar store, find a large enough picture frame and score the glass down to size so it fits.

I'll prob got to the hardware store and pay the huge price of $3 or so for the thin glass. heh What the heck. I need experience cutting glass anyway, and I can always use it for more tops if I don't mess up too much.

I think that's a good call. And maybe something to document for others to see how it's done - especially if you make mistakes - because that's the best way to learn.

I plan on adding hardscape to the left side, wood or rock, and then utilizing flame moss to hopefully grow up and out of the left rear corner into the tank once it's long enough. Maybe attaching some anubias nana to that piece of hardscape. Then toss in some cholla and/or breeding tubes with moss attached. It will all come together, this is what I had from previous builds. My light is coming, excited!

I'll try my best to document the success or failure of it now that I have the camera charger.

My FugeRay-R has arrived! Wasn't sure about this fixture as it's only 10" long on an 18" tank. I'm actually really happy with it upon first impression. The right side is left a bit dark, but I think I'll toss cholla wood, an IAL, and maybe a breeding tube in that corner under the wood instead of plants. Here's a cell phone pic.

After seeing all these awesome tanks I decided I had to grab one for myself. I'm pretty new to all this but I'm pretty happy with my tank so far. After the tiny beast finishes cycling I plan to add yellow shrimp.
