JAC-Just Another Cube

I had a homemade 12", ~7.5gal cube laying around. Painted it black, made a hood for it, took out a fixture from an old broken 10gal hood and put that in the hood and here's what I got. It has an aquqclear 20 on it.



-2-4" of Netlea Brown Soil mixed with some Netlea Lambo for substrate.
-Driftwood with moss tied and trimmed, for what my roommate is calling the Christmas tree
-moss ball
-some rocks that have a nice natural algae on them from another tank
-1 val in the back corner that will grow, it was a runner from my big vals in another tank
-Some sort of hydro that gets a nice red to it, just took some trimmings from another tank
Chola wood

3-Lesser Killifish
1-Oto
2-PFR's
Some ramshorns.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Sump Pimp #2

I was thinking the same thing. I like the tree though.

Have you thought about moving it to the left side to hide the filter?

I'll try moving the tree around after the hydro fills in a bit and see how it goes. The dollar store Job's Root Tabs are doing great for them though, they are growing really fast even after a few days.

Moosenart: Ya, this was just stuff I had around. Tank, made the hood, used a fixture, some extra Netlea and plant trimmings from other tanks. Didn't spend a penny to get it setup.
