May I know what brand or item number for the table? I was going to make DIY stand but if its $20 from ikea I could just avoid the hassle

Looking good! My only suggesting is to move the rocks over to one side more. Usually it looks better when the focal point is not centered.

Love the setup, I'm trying to get ideas for a 5 gallon I'm going to set up soon. I'd love to do a scape similar to yours, just mini.

How long does the PB co2 kit last with a 20L? I'm looking into going pressurized with mine.

The PB setup you guys are seeing is for my 12g tank. I'm using a 5 lb bottle and some regulator off of [Ebay Link Removed] It just happened to come in with other stuff.

That being said, it works great and I actually just bought a second one for the 30-C a couple of days ago.

Thanks! Try to get as much elevation change as possible. Mine sort of settled out over time. :/

Considering it in the upcoming "mini" rescape.

Looking good so far. Where are the lily pipes from? I have the same 2213 filter and I'm presently looking for a set of lily pipes.

A company off of ebay based in Taiwan. Takes almost a month to come in, but good quality. I had to take it off the tank though because it didn't produce enough flow to reach all of the tank.

How does that ikea coffee table works? I have one too but its not for my tank. I'm just afraid that if I do use it, it will not support the weight and might warp the wood (reconstruction wood).

i admire the simplicity of the scape. your minimal selection of plants and choice in fauna; you present a wonderful scale and depth that is deceptive of the true size of the tank, great job!

X2, that's what I went with on my current 20g long. Something overly simple, yet looks very beautiful.

Yes it's particle board, but it's completely solid. I ran my 20g long SW tank with 75 lbs of live rock, moved it a couple of times in 2 years without any issues of warping. The table is surprisingly strong.

Thanks guys!


Trimmed the tank again about a week ago. The algae problem is slowly going away and the HC carpet has made a complete comeback. That being said the tank looks completely different in a week from what you see in these pics. I'll see if I can snap some tomorrow. It's due for another trim as well.







I still need to buy a real heater as you can see. Also need to run new CO2 lines as they're too short with the diffuser on the other side.

And for giggles my 12g after its rescape.

Love this tank! It's so peaceful, and really does look natural.
