Hey, if you can figure out a way to make it actually stay on, please share.  haha.  

dab of super glue on corners might help, I would test it out first lol.

OK.  One more photo.  I really like how the red looks with the volcano and all.

Here's what it would look like if I kept the volcano in the tank.  Not much room for LR and aquascaping tho.  🤔

I think it's cute.

You could put bio media in the filter and use less liverock.

If you can find a piece of flat LR you could glue 1 of the pieces on it.

 

I also think the FW tank is adorable.

👍 I think the bio media in the filter would help given the limited space. 

 

I have like 36 lb of Real Reef Rock in a bin of SW right now (mostly for another project).  I'm hoping I can make something in there work, but we shall see.

While getting ready for work this morning I was looking on Amazon to return the vinyl film, but read the product description again.  Within the instructions, basically in caps, there was a note to remove the protective static layer before applying the film.  What static layer?

 

So I looked at the vinyl film again and peeled at the edges.  Lo and behold, a static layer.  🤦‍♂️

 

Peeled off the static layer and tried again.  It stays on now!

Picture with static layer.  😂

While other pico contestants be killing it with their DIY custom work building stands from scratch, I just did a little twisty here and a little twisty there to end up with this:

It's a cheap IKEA stand, but I think it fits perfectly with the #kiddiereeftank.

Hey, a stand is a stand, right? Judged for whats IN the tank, not what it's sitting on.

I was definitely thinking about your tiny little custom stand when I posted that.  😁

Rule No. 1 for the new stand category: no stands made out of acrylic.  😁

Last shot of the tank for the night.  I love staring at tanks at night (even empty).  But I really do need to get my act together and start thinking about finalizing the real equipment (i.e., lights and filter) and getting this tank scaped and wet.  Lots to do!  omgomgomg

You take some beautiful photography though. A deep understanding on how light plays a role in it. I wish I had that kind of talent, or an eye for art, or SOMETHING...lol

Thank you!  I'm still learning how to use my wife's camera but joining this contest is a good motivator to learn.
