2.5l planted tank

Well after thinking about it I decided to start a new planted tank. So I decided to try a true pico by building my own tank. This is my first try at building a tank. I used precut 8x10 sheets of acrylic from Lowes. The tank ended up being 4x5x8 which is 2.5l. I plan on using HC in the foreground and dwarf hg in the back with 1-2cherry shrimp. for filtration I will do a 30-40% water change or maybe a small penn-plax internal filter closed down some.


Oh yeah, lighting will come from a 13w screw in fluorescent bulb.

thats a nice size. I've been wanting to build one like that myself. I'm gonna try to have nothing showing in the corners to keep it clean.
