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


Just started mine...right now there is no budget for much so I used some rocks found behind my local Lowe's...LOL...and a few from a previous nano....still waiting for the stand to come, but in the meantime, at least the cycling can be started...so far water seems to be good...photo period at the moment is from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM and form 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM...will see if I get an algea bloom or not...lots of fun with this little tank...

Stand is almost done for my 12long. Its 48" tall.
Ordered a fishneedit.com 2-bulb 36" t5 fixture also. Going to paint it to match the stand.

Option B is also pretty groovy, and a bit more unusual. But I love A as well.

I bought my 12g long months ago, because they stock them at my LFS for 89 bucks. It has been sitting since March.

Finally got a filter, light, and Aquasoil headed my way. Picked up a craigslist stand for 20 bucks. It's time to get it rolling!

Personally, I think "A" shortens the tank. I like c or d

I am loving option C. If you don't already know, you can buy led strips that are controllable by remote if you want to actually get that effect. You can dial in almost every color. Still need to buy one myself.

First off, beautiful drawing! Wish I had to skills to work it out like yours before designing my tanks

I would vote for B, but with B I think you would need a canopy or something the wood could hold on for that method to work. Have seen many beautiful beautiful tanks like B, but they are HUGE tanks, don't think a canopy would look too good on a 12 long.

With that being said, the next one in line for me would be C!

Good luck and keep us posted

I have some indian almond leaves I plan on using so the color im not too worried about getting! and some manzanita on the way with the bark still on, so with hope it should get nice and dark!

as far as a canopy goes, Im making a clear glass top that should rest gently on the top for stray beta fish jumps and the like plus my kuhlis love to run up the side of the tank..

Sand is in and running a polish filter for a bit to get some of the smaller dust bits! Once the wood gets here things should get rolling!
also, wow! the front is so long on this thing! makes me nervous haha
Everyone at work loves to stop by and look at it though
