Chang Beer Tank

Thought I'd go ahead and post this here. I turned a beer dispenser into a shrimp tank with sponge filter. Spout still works, and is perfect for water changes.

Mini-Rose Moss and Java fern for the plants.

Top has a nice bright white LED that I hacked together, as well as a color changing LED array for mood lighting.

Answers:
1 - Capacity is 3l if I remember correctly, so not very big.
2 - The dispenser was a promo piece given to the restaurant my wife works at so didn't cost me a dime. (She is the main chef at a Thai restaurant)

I've wanted to do this for years, I'm glad you did!

My 21st birthday is coming up... maybe I'll buy the whole tower...
