12 gallon long

So i thought i would share my tank progress with all of you


Equipment
mr aqua 12g long
Satellite plus, ardrino controlled
Custom overflow
custom 10g sump
mag 3 pump
cerges reactor
5# co2 tank
custom ryu1 Reg
stainless jet return

Substrate
MTS
Black diamond blasting media

fauna


3 khulli loaches
4 Harlequin rasbora
2 otos
1 betta


flora
Erios Japan x2
A. Reineckii 'Mini
Fissidens Thailand
Blyxa japonica
staurogyne repens
CABOMBA FURCATA
baby tears


Drilling my first holes in glass ever

2x 1 1/8 holes






Overflow is a 2x3 box going the depth of the tank with 2 3/4in drains. One is setup as an emergency, the other a full siphon drain





Sump made form 10g tank, still needs sealed and the drip plate made/ installed




Locations of everything not exactly where i want it yet





water level gets set by an angled piece of glass in the tank. Originally had the water line set 1/8 from the top looked awesome but made me nervous
It is now set about 1/4in
