Hello, fellow fish keepers!
Not a big poster here, but have been lurking and learning
for a long while...
Had a wacky idea for a 20 ish gallon aquarium, approximate water holding dimensions of 30*12*14
Its planned to be about a 20-30 degree tilt (dependant when the substrate slides... the tank will have stabilizing "ribs" to help), planted and low tech. The piping output will be secured to the tank, but the pipe carrying water (the black line above the tank) which will connect to an in-line canister filter would be removable. The light (yellow line) will sit on top of the sealed glass top.
Obviously I will be building the stand, lights etc.
I see a few problems;
1, cleaning such an awkward shape (the opening on the top would be about 4*12)
2, rampant algae growth on the top glass panel due to light proximity
Just would like some other opinions on the design and potential problems I have overlooked.
