Built another nano cube with all in one filter

I have been playing with acrylic lately and just finished building my second nano cube today. This is a 12 inch cube with a built in all in one filter. The filter has foam, seachem matrix, adjustable 80gph pump and a 25 watt heater in it.

This will be a planted tank with shrimp in the near future and I ordered a clip on finnex LED light for it today too.

Nice job ! What thickness of acrylic did you use for the sides? Looks like more than 1/4" . Slick cover , too.

Really nice work!!

A piece of sponge across the filter side of the overflow will keep shrimp from getting into the filter chamber.
