I like what you're doing here. Very interested to see what you have in mind for the filtration system. I understand it in my mind but curious to see how it plays out. Both tanks look great. Any fauna plans?
I love the idea of either 3 of the same style or 3 contrasting styles of tanks together. Plus, it satisfies my collectoritis need to have many tanks and plants, haha...Those are sweet little setups. I have three old vintage 2.5G metaframes and I have pondered lining them up like that for a triptych.
It really looks that way, but it's just the shadows and light. Don't worry - It's level!Nice set ups indeed. Just wondering, is it just me or are the tanks unstable/unbalanced? Look at the shadows at the underneath. It almost looks like the front is floating.
Thanks! The fauna depends on what I come up with for filtration. MyLove what you've done with the
hardscape in those. Interested to see what you come up with for filtration. Are you going to be putting bettas in there? What is your substrate? What was the failure the first time 'round?
I was thinking of something like this, actually. The hangup would be creating the siphon from one to the next and keeping it going. also, that would mean one tank would be perpetually lower level than the other. This is why I was thinking two Tom's nano filters as pumps and using the 2.5 gal as a sort of sump or building two nano canister filters from PVC or some similar container. Any thoughts? Maybe I'll draw up some plans and post them for review...What about trying to do over flows from one to the next, then a filter that cycles the water back to the first tank. You could use siphon tubes instead of overflows too.
YOu are seeing the effect of the clear acrylic.Nice set ups indeed. Just wondering, is it just me or are the tanks unstable/unbalanced? Look at the shadows at the underneath. It almost looks like the front is floating.
Thanks for the tips! I assumed it was a score-and-snap situation, but I've never cut acrylic before, haha...Haha cutting acrylic is fun. I hate how I spent about 10 dollars getting an acyrlic cutter when I found out that I could easily use my knife (even my house key).
Just score and snap. And incase it comes off edgy, just sand/file it down.
Here's another option for your filter since you already have the pump and acrylic sheets, is to make an AIO tank, or make a sump out of the empty tank (I'm assuming you have an aquarium safe silicone at home). Pretty much is make the extra tank a filter and use the pump to circulate the water. I'm not sure if you catch my drift or not...
Thanks! These are as recent as they get for now. These pics are from last weekend I'll post more in a week or so - still has some growing to do!it looks nice! Do you have the updated pics of the setup?
