Thanks! This tank was completely drained... but I do have the rock/wood/substrate still, maybe I'll see if I can recreate it (or something close).

Thanks CL! I've been inspired by your tanks for a bit now ... maybe it's time you get one then!

You've inspired me to make my own 3G (except it's not in the bathroom lol). Should I go NPT or Iwagumi? Fish or shrimp?

P.S.: subscribed!

These tanks are tiny, I'd say shrimp over fish. Fish will probably jump, or at least feel cramped. Maybe Iwagumi?
Funny thing, as you posted this, I'm downstairs putting this tank together again! Give me a bit more, and I'll have pics of the new layout.
I know you wanted me to recreate the same layout, but I had to go with something new. Hope it's still appealing!

So I purchased some HC and DHG from GLA.
Split the roots into different tanks and boxes (indoors and out).
Most thriving, but my 10 gallon outside was getting too hot, so these are the pieces I was able to salvage.
Haven't decided about the tank options for post-flooding, but I'm thinking about doing something nice.

Plants are starting to grow horizontally, this is good news.
Hoping for some nice growth here..

Is this sitting on top of your toilet, or across from it?

Busted. It's no longer a toilet tank, but instead of losing the cool name, I added "mobile".
This tiny 3g moves around a lot, too bad I haven't done a good job of documenting all of it over the past couple years.

You should make it a tiger shrimp and/or a babaulti tank. Exciting but not too fragile shrimp.

80% of the HC melted, but the remaining amount is growing back now. Plus I've planted DHG in the back, and it's establishing. I've also added a layer of aqua soil onto the black gravel, hopefully it will help. Once this tank looks a little more impressive, I'll post a proper update with photos.

This tank is slowly bouncing back.
I'm confident it will grow, but had a feeling things would be tough.
Pics soon.
