Custom 3g long is comming along nicely, so I figured it's time for some pics as I just re-scaped the rock layout & added some better zoos.

Camera isn't that great, so low chance of quality closeups X)

Currently lit by 2 20w 50/50 screw-ins but waiting on some final parts for 2 28w 10k & 1 28w actinic, as well as a DIY LED moonlight. Hood still needs to be finished off. Custom Fuge needs a few finishing touches. Dual powerheads on either side flow from inside fuge through back of tank into custom bent nozzles. Some rock was from LFS, and got 2 lbs of Fiji from Premium Aquatics as wel las 2lbs of rubble in the fuge. (should have got a bit more of each). More pics as it comes along.

Current items of "interest":
Brown polyps (default starter corals :P )
Maroon shrooms
Goniopora (small colony came on shroom rock)
Zoos - Red rust skirt, purple disk with white speckles, orange/yellow mouth
Zoos - Green skirt, purple disk with pink speckles, pastel yelow mouth
Larger Green Polyps
Zebra Hermit
Astrea snail (with a shell of red cyano :D )
white mini brittle starfish
few bristle worms
few tiny snails
terrebellid worms
fan worms

20w are gonna go in a 2.5g I'm gonna set up. Already have everything needed for for a softy tank, so won't cost any more $$

Tank itself is roughly 15 5/8" long x 7" deep x 6 1/2" high (not including hood). With a connected fuge 14 1/2" w x 4 1/2" d x 6 1/2" high. Fuge will have a AGA Screw in 10w 6700k (or is it 6500k? :D) for the chaeto.

5.5g reef: 96w Quad 50/50("rigged")| AC500 full modded fuge. (retired)
2.5g reef: Complete DIY 2.5g acrylic tank & hood (retired due to split seam ;_;).
20g long prop tank. 10g sump, 175w MH.

Awesome tank. I like the long look. I wish my 5.5 was a "long." Looks great!

Beautiful tank, I love length and I guess it looks great on really small tanks, too.

Wow, forgot I ever made this thread. Tank is gone, as I never felt 100% sure of the fuge I glued on the back. Tank was polysterene (turned upside-down cover for models, etc...), and fuge was cheap extruded 1/8" acrylic.

This was all transfered into a 5.5g (that I never made a thread for).


I should DIY a new version of this, seriously.


Few more pics I never posted up.

ive been wanting to build a 10 gallon shallow long tank (about 3-4 feet long) for sometime now. But I really have trouble finding the materials in my area. Where do you get yours?
