Yikesjason's 33gal Rimless


Hobbies always kind of wax and wane. I have been waning for the the last year. So, for several reasons, I decided to downsize my 150 gal to a really nice rimless tank. I just got it set up this weekend after building a stand and light hanger. I didn't take any pictures during the building. It is an ADA style with a dark mahogany stain. I am not 100% happy with how the stain came out, but over all I am happy with the stand. I even added a false ceiling inside with mini can lights and a dimmer switch for the leds.

Here are a couple of pictures. I want to get a few more foreground plants like downoi and one other, and I also have some acrylic lily pipes on the way.

This is just the lighting from the two 21w par30 led bulbs.


This has some extra lighting.


Just the tank.

Hey jason, before I do the outlet lily pipe bends. Where do you want the lily pipe to be situated at in this tank. I'll try to make the bends as tight as possible without them becoming ugly, but about the most I can do is 2" with the 3/4"

I did some additions to the tank.


I didn't include pictures of the inside of the stand before.


There is a ceiling inside the stand with a pair of mini can lights, dimmer for the leds, switch for the cans, and it hides most of the wiring.

Beautiful set up. Very clearly set up by an experienced aquariast.
What are the spec?
WhAt lights? Led? Cre?
What substrate?
How much co2?

Want to go led but it's a bit confusing.

Each led bulb has 7 x 3w cool white cree leds. I also moved my 65w florescent floodlights over from the big tank for the big anubias growing out the top. That way they don't reach out under the leds and block the light for the tank.
For substrate I have the new Amazonia multi.
I am still working on co2 levels. I have an inline diffuser for the co2.
Marineland C-360 canister, with a Hydor 300w inline heater. Soon I will add some acrylic lily pipes.
