DIY Glass tanks

I build these two little tanks from my bigger 10 Gallon.
One of them is about 2.5~ gallons, i will use that as a
nano tank, the other one is a Wabi kusa kind of tank, so
ill try to start one of those too.
It cost me 12 dollars to make, 5 for the glue, 6 for the glass cutter, and 1 for some sand paper, and an old 10 Gallon.
here are some pictures.
It was my first time cutting glass and using that kind of silicon, so it's not perfect, but i bet the
next time i do it it will come out nicer.
No fingers were lost in the making of these tanks.(just a couple of cuts)

Hey, good to know.

I'm from Puebla. I haven't set a foot yet on Jalisco, but I plan to do my internship at the biological station in Manantlán. Advanced bird-watching, mist netting, etc...
