LEGO Nano Cube

Got way too much time on my hands! Positively, my last tank project for awhile. Was inspired by another Lego tank on this forum, this is my version of a planted tank that I typically build.

144cc LEGO rimmed cube tank
lighting: LEGO "Finnex" light fixture 2.5"
filtration: LEGO "Ehiem" canister
CO2: LEGO paintball tank & regulator
substrate: LEGO black
plants: LEGO rosette "center" & Lego stems "corners"
stand: LEGO wood storage stand

Way to go, fellow LEGO! Hopefully some other builders will pull their bricks "out of the closet" and show us more tank builds!

Love the CO2 system!

Have an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out.

Now that is a great idea! I have those pieces and believe that it would look very realistic.

Unfortunately, all me tanks are lit w/ LEDs or natural sunlight so no fluorescents for me. This build was a "Pick a Brick" project. 55 pcs and this was much cheaper than the tank pedestal for my "MacAquarium" project.

Just like AS Amazonia, LEGO Black has everything you need for plants. For any animals, need to cycle for 3-4 weeks to get the NH4 under control. Looking for a LEGO shrimp to add when that time comes. Know where I can find one?
