very nice! just curious though, why would you set up such a nice tank in the exact spot another tank is going to go within a month?

well, i had most of this stuff in another tank that i needed to break down. so i needed a cheap solution to hold me over till i could get the ada tank here. i saw a thread on de-rimming a 10gal tank and checked out a couple threads of members with these tank's(yours being one of them =) ). figured i couldnt beat it for $11.99 and i will probally be ready to rescape when the new tank arrives. i want to do some mosses and stuff with the new setup...

Love the tank...! Very Nice, I may try something like that myself...Was it hard de-rimming the tank?? I may have a donor tank to do that on....

Oh, cant read the label but that beer looked tasty...!!

It's Yuengling! Always a nice companion to scaping. Looks nice, makes me want to pick up a 10 gallon for $11 from wal-mart and try the same...

Very true! will you break this tank down when the ada comes or move it?

Nice looking. I can hardly believe it's nearly all Blyxa. Some E. quadricostatus would look great in the background. (I'm not sure if it's a true Echinodorus or if it's been renamed? )

Anyway, it looks great for being so simple. I wish it didn't have to come down.

I like it.... now. It about a month, the blyxa will envelope that entire tank. But I guess it doesn't matter since its only temporary.
