So PetSmart has these 3.5 gallon Half Moon acrylic tanks for $21. I decided to set up a shrimp tank for my home office desk. Tank is pretty good, the Filter Works, but the LED light is horrible. I've ordered a new one.

After messing with it I realized what it really needed was better filtration so here's how I have it set up. I built a Sponge Filter which sits back in the corner and from the front is barely even visible because of the Half-Moon shape. I'm using the built-in filter four biological only filtration. I also added a sponge to the intake of the built in filter. At the moment I have carbon in the built in filter just remove the discoloration from the leaves.
