33g long aquarium w/10g fry tank

This
This is my new setup i'm slowly working on 33g with a attached 10g that overflows and goes back into the 33g tank. It's a slow work in progress here are some of the beginning photos.

Cool - love the 33L. I've always hated the proportions of a 55 but the height of the 33 is just right.

How is the water getting up to the 10?

For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

I had a 30L which has dimentions of 36"x12"x16".
What are the dimentions on this tank ?

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Love the 33 long dimensions. I have one myself even though it's not setup at the moment.

Regards,
Robert

What is going in the main tank? You mention 'fry tank', so I assume whatever it is you have the full intention of breeding it.

I had the order mine at the LFS. About 7 years ago and I think it was $38 or so.

wow really never seen these? I would think in your area they would be easy to find, my LFS sell these some stores they need to special order them, but the boxstores like petco do not carry 33g long.

Nice I got a great deal on mine, $49 at a store that was having a sale, if I were to have ordered it, it was $110.
