I finally finished setting up my tank! Whoohoo! I really like how it turned out.

It's a Marineland Hex 5 Gallon with filter (baffled) and an adjustable 25 watt heater.

The plants are fake, but I will be going live as soon as I can. No fishy in there yet. Hopefully I'll find a buddy tomorrow

The last couple of pictures are there to show how I modified the arch. Although it's meant for the aquarium, it's hollow and the edges of the hollow were sharp - a fishy could totally swim up in there and maybe get stuck or injured. So I blocked the holes with plastic canvas and AQ sealant (yes, I let it cure for 48 hours and gave it a good rinse).

Okay, enough talking. Here it is

Very nice! Looking good, and good work with the arch!

If it helps, I really like ordering from Sweetaquatics.com for my plants. They have good prices and fantastic plants.
They take a little longer than other places to ship, but thats ok- Its a mom and pop business.

If you wanna order from em, do it now lol! Youll get em in a few weeks. :D

Quality and price over speed for me, lawl.

Chandler hanging out down by the river:


Ross in his little oasis


Thailand import, Joey enjoying his American home


and Justin Furstenfeld (named after the lead singer of Blue October) rocking out. I need to do something besides that castle eventually :)

Thank you! I felt like an aquatic Martha Stewart doing it. Except of course she would've imported the mesh from France and mixed the sealant by hand using champagne vinegar and Swiss Alp spring water. It's a good thing!

Unfortunately I'm in Canada which limits who I can order from. However I've got line on a fellow who lives in my province and sells plants etc. through Aquabid. He's got some beautiful bettas, too.

Great tanks! And I love the "rock on" sign. That's hilarious

Thank you! Have you put up a pic of your tank yet? I'll keep my eye out for it if you have. I've only gotten to page 111 of this thread so it might be a while
