    MASA,

    So I decided it was time to experiment and create a small little nano for my kitchen counter. I decided to go with a the size 420mmx420x420mm. I'm not sure why. I was keen to try create a all-in-one system and just introduce some more variety. Also I wanted to make a tank and had never done it before. As is expected it turns out more expensive than just buying one (TL550 or similar). I'll run some PL bulbs initially and then migrate to LED when I have the time, money and patience for a neat DIY LED job.

    Not sure what I'm putting in it yet... but oh well! :p This should keep me busy until I redo my main tank with a drastic aquascape overhaul when the weather warms up a bit.

    The first attempt to use the silicone turned out dreadfully. I didn't spend enough time prepping the setup and then spent 3 hours cleaning up silicone. Second attempt was much better.

    It turned out alright I think...
