I love the rock formation in the 2 gal. nano. What inspired you? XD

Overall, great aquascaping. Can't wait to see those nano's fill in.

Loving the 240, but I got a question on the 55: Why did you call it a "uniquarium?" Just very curious.

uniaquariums are tanks that have a filtration compartment in the back. So if its a 55G tank, in general you actually only have 40G or so to use because the rest is being used for the filtration compartments.

That would just be an internal overflow. A lot of reef tanks have it. My dad had a tank like that for a fish-only freshwater. Never heard it called uniquarium though.

Actually overflow, and more than likely a wet-dry system back there. My Bio-Cube has one.

Unix, as someone who can appreciate scaping a big tank, the 240 is stunning.
Please post some specs on that beautiful monster!!!!
