    Hey guyz. I'd like to introduce you to my tank. Completely diy'd. Tank, stand, lights, plumbing... Still busy though. So for now it's just "tiny cube", AWESOMENESS is still to come. Dimensions 360 x 360 x 250. Building another sump today, for the meantime i'm using a standard 1ft. Its a pico, so no real filtration was planned besides the 2kg's of liverock in the tank and a bag of carbon in the sump. dno if i should diy a skimmer, ats...the sump was intended to hide all equipment. the tank has a slimline over flow, and its drilled on the back pane. it was my first overflow so i messd up. My DT's water level is up to the glass, not a mm space! hectic i know. I dont plan on keeping any fooshies for obvious reasons. mayb just a fire shrimp or two, some softies if possible and a porcelain crab. for lighting it has an 18w pl tube. anyway enough talking![​IMG]

    Trust me as I speak from experience, you DO NOT want them in your tank, they a pest and once they start reproducing, there's no stopping them.....

    I'm guessing you don't work with your hand in that tank with the power one, it's like an instant flood:whistling:. Looks great but nuke that aiptasia!:yeahdude:
