Started putting this together a few weeks ago with stuff I had laying around.
The tank WAS a 7 1/2 gallon that i cut down with an angle grinder.
Its now 15 1/4L x 9 3/4W x 5H...though the back is still full size(12 inches).
These are inside dimensions and it should hold 3.2 gallons without sand,rock,etc.
This is BY NO MEANS a biotype...it is my "artistic" impression of a lagoon setting at high tide.
It will include a waterfall,a mangrove forrest,macroalgae,coral,cuc and a "feature" fish or invert...yet to be determined.
tank(unknown maker) 15 1/4L x 9 3/4W x 5H
Elite mini 25 watt heater
Tetra internal power filter 2-10 gallon(85gph)
13 watt 6500k cfl bulb(for mangroves)
2-3 x 1w cool white and 3-4 x 1w royal blue gu10 LEDs
2 hydor pico evolution power heads
8lbs dry rock/2lbs live rock
8lbs live sand
several macroalgaes...ochtodes,halymenia sp, unidentified red macro
cuc...3 ceriths,3 nerites,1 nassarius,limpets,bristle worms

It has been cycling for 2 weeks now,though I just added more sand for the mangroves on the left
side before I took the pics...sorry.
We'll see where this idea ends up...
Enjoy(and wish me luck)!!
