Last minute entry- Gourami Swami's 6g 365 Day Challenge Reef

Recommended Posts

Well, I was not going to enter this contest, as I have a new 40 gallon AIO reef I started a month ago (which is doing great, just haven't posted it yet)

But I was looking through a box of aquarium parts and realized I still have an AIO insert that I got with a Petco bowfront set I tore down a while ago. I also realized I had a dry 6 gallon tank, and turns out the AIO fits 100% perfectly in the tank. Figured what the hell, I have everything I need, might as well join the contest. I'm getting a late start here I realize, but I am pretty excited that I found everything I need equipment wise in my aquarium box, and just a few days before the cut-off.

Here's what I've got so far...

 

The tank: Aquatop 6g Rimless Low-Iron Bookshelf

Light: Current USA Orbit Marine 18".  Had this in my last 14.26 gallon build (contents of which are now in 40g)

Filter: AIO Insert from Imagitarium 6.6g bowfront kit

Pump: Stock Pump from Imagitarium kit

Powerhead: Jebao OW10. Currently in my 40g, need to upgrade and then will move it over to this tank.

Heater: Hygger 50 watt controllable titanium heater

 

Have some cool ideas for a theme and aquascape as well, using only dead coral collected by a friend from the beach in the Dominican Republic. So this tank will be costing me very little, if anything at all! 

Here are my entry pics, dry setup

glad you found all this in the fish box....I knew there is a reason why we keep fish stuff around. never know when you will need it.

I think this is going to be a good looking tank!

 

just be careful and read the laws if your friends are on vacation and coming home with a suitcase full of dead corals would hate for them to get fined or worse.

Did you change your mind? Is this tank wet or still just laying around?
