This is gonna be cool.
Gotta love the simplicity in the construstion. no special substrate, no expensive lights. i agree with steven though, this is gonna be a tough scape to get a good looking heighth to.

LOL. That is some great PS work! Good that you have a vision for this tank. It will keep it from becoming a stem field.

Thats my greatest fear. When the project gets close to Go-Time I usually get way too excited and lose sight of my plan.

yes, I do have the same tank, Bought it as a terrarium at first with a screen enclosure on top and a chamelion inside. But was made of 1/4 glass, chamelion eventually died,and I turned it in to a planted tank ( the 1/4 tank broke when I was putting water in it to fill it up, hey they didn't tell me it wouldn't hold full water) so they re-made it out of 3/8 glass. You may want to run a 2x4 across the center of the bottom of the tank, thats what I did. I don't have a canopy on mine, but after seeing yours I just may build one for it...... let me know if you have any heat issues.

Steven, I agree. I have come to the understanding that I will not have an Amano or Chong looking tank without CO2, and thats not somthing that I have the time nor money to do right now. So I am going with things that I know I can grow well (who cant ) and I may get some other stuff in the future to cover more of the open area in the tank. But for now, my vision is a lot of Anubias, Crypts and Swords... with some Marselia Minuta for a foreground cover if I can find any.

Nice work on the stand and good stuff with AHS and an Eheim filter. At first I thought I saw a Cobalt Discus around that Anubias, but it must of been my imagination.

DIY stands are definately the way to go to save a little and make sure they are solid. That will look great with a bunch of Endlers scooting around. BTW, which Eheim did you get, an Ecco?

You're right about the Discus

The Eheim is the ECCO 2234 model. I actually just turned it on about an hour ago. Tank seems to be clearing up nicely. Flicked the lights on to get an idea as well.



EDIT: I don't know why the stand and canopy look so different in color. They're really not. Must be the angle of the camera or the flash or somthing.

Just got done planting. The water clouded up terribly again but thats expected with planting the tank.

Its hard to see but there are 5 rather large chunks of Driftwood in there with Anubias ties all over them.
