DrWonga's 20G Long Southeast Asian Build
As I posted previously, I am converting my 40 gallon breeder over to a West African Congo river biotope. Since I have a bunch of crypts growing in the tank currently, I decided to do something with them, rather than just toss them. I purchased the tank a couple weekends ago, and I have spent the last week or so looking for a solid wood tank stand. Turns out, such a thing no longer exists...so I decided to start building my own! I've never done such a thing, and my experience with using power tools was an electric drill. You can read some more about the build on my blog
I hope to complete most of the frame this weekend, and get something really going for this tank soon.
As for lighting, I'm thinking about running two T5's, but that may be overkill. The main residents will be a large school of harlequin rasboras, another school of glass catfish, and maybe a small loach.
