33g long aquarium w/10g fry tank


This
This is my new setup i'm slowly working on 33g with a attached 10g that overflows and goes back into the 33g tank. It's a slow work in progress here are some of the beginning photos.

Cool - love the 33L. I've always hated the proportions of a 55 but the height of the 33 is just right.

How is the water getting up to the 10?

My guess would be a pump

Love the 33 long dimensions. I have one myself even though it's not setup at the moment.

What is going in the main tank? You mention 'fry tank', so I assume whatever it is you have the full intention of breeding it.

wow really never seen these? I would think in your area they would be easy to find, my LFS sell these some stores they need to special order them, but the boxstores like petco do not carry 33g long.

Nice I got a great deal on mine, $49 at a store that was having a sale, if I were to have ordered it, it was $110.
