Pico Reef Contest Ideas 🤔💭💡

Good for you @Snow_Phoenix, but I don't want others actually thinking that this contest won't happen.  It's like reef keeping, we just need a little patience.

The containter contest was announced on Oct 2, with an enter by date of Oct 31, and end date of Mar 31. Just sayin'.

I agree. I'm honestly just joining in just to be a part of something, and I think of it as a personal mini project of sorts. I haven't had a pico reef for many, many years, and never one this small. It'd be an interesting experience. 🙂

I love your spirit in this Snow!  I too, am in it just for the fun of being part of something.  I know from the creative container contest that I did learn a lot which was an added bonus!

I would rather go for honesty. And let it fall where it may.

IDK, it's really thin glass and the edges won't be polished (or even lined up correctly).  Probably not worth it.

that could be...watched a video of a dude who says it should only be done on tanks 10 gallons or less and I think a few have commented on the possibility.

 

I guess a lot of it would have to do with how good the silicon job is on the tank...if it's decent or really good, it's might be worth it.

 

that said, it does appear to be a lot of work...scraping the left over silicon looks to be a fussy process!  😛

I just tried that on mine, thankfully I got it off in one piece. Was not worth the effort. Finish was terrible nothing lined up well and the silicone looked like it was sneezed on.

 

Currently trying to put the rim back on

Well since i can’t get some rules I’m going to start cutting and building the tank 

I have to water test, flame polish the edges, and mostly find the right “colors”
