Looks pretty good. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but if that were mine I'd run a thicker bead of sealant than that.

iamntbatman you are 100% correct i should have.only the rear (wait which ones the rear?) bottom leaked so i sealed the whole bottom (inside and out) 1 more time.

and your not paranoid :D

so does anyone think that 6 neon tetras would fit?

I can't see the pic for some reason. =[

It sounds amazing though! And if I had a ton of glass just lying around then I'd make a 5 gal too! =] A cube sounds beautiful! =]

Guppies are always nice! =] They come in such a variey of patterns and colors! =] I'd love to own some but they don't mix with bettas and vice versa. <=/

ok one again im changing!

im going to make my current 10 gallon tadpole tank into my live bearer tank,and make my 5 gallon cube into the fry/tadpole tank.

so i ran out and got a filter and hooked it up along with my heater and airstone.

so i got some aponogeton bulbs and i was wondering if anyone had some in their tank to show pics.i like the google images pics but none are in a populated tank.

For livebearers for a small tank, I can't recommend Endler's livebearers enough. Amazing looking little fish that can be kept in decent numbers in fairly small tanks. They won't eat their own fry so if you get mixed sexes (which is likely, since they're often sold as pairs or trios) you'll end up with lots of fry.
