Beautiful tank, very good sense of perspective. What are your plans?

Best,

First thing i have to do is scape this in another tank made of Optiwhite glass. This tank is damaged (glass corrosion). Next step is planting - I am planing to use Fissidens, Riccardia and Mini Eleocharis. Inhabitants will be Boraras micros and orange shrimps... Maybe Pygmy Corys. Foirgot to say, on the pathway i am planning to grit fine sand.

Awesome hardscape. Even without plants look complete. Do you have space for filter inflow/outflow in there?

Wish I had an entire room dedicated just for more tanks!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Did you take pics of building the tank? It looks professionally made.

I have some:

First you need to put tape:




Sides that overlapping you need to tape it from edge for glass tickness - in my case 6mm



First glue bottom and sides, remove excess silicone, and then glue front glas:



After 2-3 hours back glass:




Remove all excess silicone right away and let it dry for one day. When it is dry remove tape, and if there is some excessive slilcone remove it with sharp blade.

It looks pretty straightforward, and I guess those four pieces of glass don't cost a lot.

Do you buy your glass as bigger pieces, and then cut them yourself, or do you buy them cut to a pre ordered measurement?

And another question as we live in similar country.. Do you buy your glass in Baumax, Bauhaus etc. or you get it from some special "glass store"?

Thank you for your answers and your time!
