My new 10g AIO is officially up and running. The rock in it has been curing for the last 2 1/2 months. This tank is the future home of my clown fish pair and a BTA.
I put some black acrylic on the inside to hide the filtration. I thought I'd rather do that than black spray paint. It looks a touch off with the silicone right now, but I think it'll look better when it's wet. I decided if it didn't look right I would likely build some wood pieces down the side of the canopy to hide the back.
These pics were taken earlier this week before I cleaned up the teeth for the overflow, put in the 1/2 hole for the return and siliconed the main piece onto the front.
Got the canopy put together enough last night. Going to finish it later. I've got to put that last side on, drill a hole in the back for the cables to go through, a fan and cut some vents. Then I'll put the top on and fancy it up of course. I'm loving the tank though. And the minimal rockwork. I'm pleased. :-)
These LEDs are SO bright. When I change the settings enough to take a pic of the surrounding area the tank is TOTALLY washed out.
