My flexible side 15

I love this aquarium, and so does everybody else who sees it. :) The great thing about it is when it's not in use, it fits in a very small box that is maybe 1 inch by 1 inch and is all tall as the tank. It had an undergravel filter that stopped working, and after it shocked me today, I decided to trash it. Now it just has some generic hang-on filter.

I wish I had a much larger one, but space to place one would be the hard part, haha.

All that is in it right now is a couple goldfish and a guppy. I'm considering adding my betta to see how that works out. and/or a few harlequin rasboras. and/or some crabs. Who knows, nothing really set yet. Any ideas?

Sorry for the quality of the pics, it's really difficult to get a shot that doesn't look overly cloudy with this tank. Reflections are horrible off the sides.

They thought Howard Hughes was crazy when he built the Spruce Goose.
OK, Howard Hughes was crazy. But hopefully I'm not. :)

Thanks. I like it. :)

I should have taken a pic with me poking the sides in so you could see it, but I just had to do a big water change bc of some random ammonia spike, so it was chockfull. Fish seems ok though.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

hi
i've seen those before :)
clever idea,at least if you ever want to stop using it then it won't take up much cupboard space.
looks good. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

^ that is true... haha.

I'm still planning out my 70 gal, so I imagine once that gets finished, this one will either be used for Tre the Betta or it will be a quarantine tank.
