@ Shimogoma....Cool illustrations. I like A, especially since I would like to do that type of layout one day.

I don't think I've ever seen a 12 gal with a unique color gradient as you show with the illustrations. I'm wondering if someone has done that yet. I'm pretty sure people like to do that with simple lighting tricks. Kind of like some Oliver Knott setups.

Goodluck with it. Looks like a fun project.

I've decided to do a custom tank instead of the 6- gallon version, but it fortunately it is about 12 gallons. the ratio is 9L x 9W x 4H. Does that count as long?

Inches or feet? 9x9x4 inches = 1.4 gallons. 9" x 9" x 4' = 16.83 gallons.

Either way, should be interesting. But the smaller one would not be suitable for any sort of fish - just shrimp.

A 9x9x4 in inches would actually look kinda weird so I think Jake is on the spot

I rescaped mine last night since I got in some new plants, and did some trimming finally lol. I am waiting for some Alternanthera Reineckii 'Rosaefolia' next week to put behind the driftwood

Looks amazing! I like how there is a shaded area in the tank. Would be lovely if this is for shrimps

Kinda of a bad pic. I plan on doing a pano of it later. this is month 3 since moving in. i had it at my parents for a few weeks while things settled down. that was a huge mistake.. this is it's recovery. removed the big piece of driftwood. working on creating scale and depth. Also thinking of adding some plants to the HOBs, i definitely need to raise the lights. its stunting the growth of a few plants.

Probably a stupid question - How do I get nerite snail eggs of my front glass? Thought I might be able to do it with my fingernails, but that didn't work.

shwew! finally got things set up! seeded my filter and all and of course hit the amazing driftwood fungus bloom :P

I ended up adding more and more and more sticks to he aquarium then took some out.. then added some thin ones back in and now its this super nice creepy, and dark aquarium on my desk at work and the fish love it! the fungus is making it look like spanish moss right now too hehe

sorry for the small pics :P

my dog loves to come into work and watch the fish!
also hooray! this went a lot faster than expected! my indian almond leaves arrived from Singapore early and so they went in fast and the water is so beautiful right now! there is some recovering frogbit ontop so soon there should be some nice shadowing.
Man, this makes me want more 12gals! lol

also edit!
ee now i want to add some cambodia or water hedge! gah! I would love something with the deep green to red color change, I got a slightly more powerful light for plants if I felt like I wanted to give them a second try in the "deadly" office water :P though root tabs will be a must!

Such great looking 12g tanks in this thread!
I'm a big fan of the rimless club, just haven't done anything with mine yet.
Soon though... very soon....
