Custom-built dirt 5g-self built rimless shrimp tank

I have the glass, but after a disaster including silicone busting out the wrong end and getting over anything, i'm waiting for it to cure so I can restart. I will re-acetone it(very harshly) and then I will get a cocking gun+Big tube o silicone.
We will try another shot at it eh?

It's dimensions are 12"L 12"W 8"H.
Okay, its 4.99g, same thing bro...
No pics though, because the tank doesn't exist yet, lol
I'm going to dirt it, and then plant it with:
amazon sword
java fern
wisteria

I'll shrimpify it. I am new to shrimp, but here is my plan:

RCS
Will feed blanched veggies 2x a week.

Scraped off nearly all silicone-acetoned it.
I was stupid enough to do all this. Then I realised i could just flip it over.
that has saved me a LOT of time, LOL
Buying a cocking gun and new silicone, then we will try to assemble this thing, ya?
