if there was a notch on one side of the tank for the water to flow out of, it would make viewing it easier. but i think this was a really creative idea, i like it
Check out the link from Haagenize on zeroedgeaquarium.com, they are amazing.
wow this is a great diy! Cant wait to see this tank filled
This is soooo cool! It's like an eternity pool!
I copied the idea of using pebbles around the edge of the tank from an eternity pool that I had the chance to visit that overflowed into rocks. Iíll be adding a lot more pebbles all around the bottom edge when I get the bugs worked out.
VERY nice diy for a ZE tank haha
This is one of the most amazing ideas I've ever seen. Is there any sort of filtration system?
Hi ya Dollface,
I might add a sponge in the fountain base, but I donít imagine any fish or shrimp are going to stay inside a tiny overflowing tank for long, so it will likely just be plants.
Nice creativity, looks like quite the job you did . Hopefully it'll turn out really nice too =]
Zero Edge Aquariums has been using somewhat of the same idea now, here is their site http://www.zeroedgeaquarium.com/
It's mostly directed towards saltwater though, but their tanks look pretty cool. Have you had and problems with visibility over the acrylic when the water is overflowing it? I'm sure it depends on how fast the flow is.
Thatís where I got the idea. I was looking at a Zero Edge Aquarium at a LFS and was amazed at how it made it looks like a big cube of free standing water.
This tiny of a tank seemed perfect for a nice down view with plants growing mostly out of the water. I donít think the water flow is available to overflow all four sides, but I like the totally ďfull of water lookĒ even with just the waterfall front. The water flow is low enough that you can actually see thru the water flowing over the front quite well. If it becomes a problem Iíll just tip the tank enough for the water to overflow the back instead of the front. Iím hoping that the very direct down lighting from the LED will cut down on algae growing on the sides of the tank.
Nice. Love the nano's that turn out to be one-of-o-kind
I appreciate everyoneís comments & whoever gave up the five-star rating ...
