But Sean...nice write up and ideas, thanks for sharing those. However, your tank looks very barren right now .

I almost ordered some of those clips last fall, but I never got around to it and honestly forgot all about them. Of course, now that you've posted about them they'll be out of stock in a hurry. I better order mine today!

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!

I did it!! Definitely needed more isopropyl though, and more patience


Highly recommend buying new sharp blades.

Well, it looks really cool, but I think what's inside is much more important. For example, I have 3 small aquariums with different types of fish, one of these aquariums is very expensive, but none of my guests have yet said "wow, what a cool aquarium you have", usually everyone pays attention to betta. I also prefer to buy a variety of jewelry from local shops, which I find thanks to https://www.vivofish.com/how-long-do-betta-fish-live/. Although your advice is really very interesting and cool. When I cleaned my car windshield, I used about the same method of cleaning the glass. I think it will work here too. Maybe I'll try in a few weeks.
