(DIY)30G Breeder

Welp, here we go again. Plan is to try my hand at a Dutch-Style scape. It'll be months before I get it up and running. Still have to water test the tank overnight etc.

Substrate : Miracle-Gro Raised Garden Bed Soil. Capped with 1240 Black Diamond blasting sand 'Medium grit'.
Hardscape : N/A
Lighting : Undecided but will go >80 par
Co2 : Yes(I'm looking at another Ista Turbo Reactor)
Filter : Eheim eco pro 2236 (This is what got me started)
Flora : Whatever I have in my 22 gallon
Fauna : Undecided

Tank : 36x18x12 (35.5x18x11.75 inner dimensions) Roughly 32 gallons.

Almost got a 40 Breeder. But I've been spoiled with rimless lately. I had extra 36x12x12 1/4" glass from my previous builds. Had to order the bottom 36x18 and the two front/back braces 36x3 from a local glass shop. Here's the Mock-up and then the finished product.




Also built the stand. I used 1" thick wood so it's not very heavy. 1/2" ply for the top and edge glued board for the bottom shelf. I'm very partial to Danish oil so that's what went on there at the end.
