Figured I'd join the fun and post mine. Only been set up for 6 months now but looking pretty good. Going to do some rearranging with misc. plants on left so it's just glosso and angustifolia soon.

I just got a 2213 for $56 - 15% cash back from my CC from Petsmart. Best price I've seen for a new 2213.

So, I'm joining the club. I'll be picking one up this weekend.

This being my first rimless tank, how many of you are running a mat of some sort under the tank?

I've never messed with a sump setup before, but this seems like as good a time as any. Any suggestions, on inconspicuous, or low-key overflows? I'm not afraid to drill.

I'm strongly considering an Iwagumi style scape with shimp of some sort. Medium light, and CO2 infused. I have equipment from a previous tank, but will go with a hanging light of some sort.

Default Fluval plant stratum

I think I'm going with Fluval Plant stratum 1.5 to 2" for the bottom layer and shrimp 1" to cover the top. Any idea on how many pounds that will take on Mr aqua 12 long? I'm going with an Iwagumi style Shrimp tank maybe 3 big rocks and a few small ones. DHG for sure, maybe a raised section of glossostigma, some moss and a few stem plants. Another question, if I have the Glossos section raised up about 4" do you think the Satellite LED + would be enough light? I haven't try growing glossos yet, I hear it's hard. I'm sure I want the Sat LED + I like all the settings and tinkering(I like to tinker) you can do with them. I have the Eheim 2213 coming and haven't ordered the lights, substrate or CO2 rig yet and I plan on building my on stand.
Thanks for any help!

Welcome!

I have a large piece of black foam core under my tank, seems to be working just fine.

Just finished my 12G Long tank stand and figured I'd show some pics for inspiration/comments. I really enjoyed this project as I decided to plan it all in my head and figure it out as I went. I went into Home Depot and looked around knowing a general idea of what I wanted. Picked up a few lengths of Grade A Clear Pine and some hardwood dowels all for $34. Here's the pics:



















Still undecided on what I want to do with the background after I removed the angustifolia any suggestions are welcome.

Thats a really cool idea. I bet all of us could do this to sneak another tank in the house Did you anchor it to the wall? It seems like it would be top heavy and tilt over very easily if the dog bangs into it or if someone wasn't paying attention while grabbing a shoe and pulls the rack down.
