So Im currently a college student at UNCC. Anyways I have a 100 gal salt tank at home. But I currently live in a dorm at school and Id like to have a fish tank with me. So I decided Id make a pico tank for my dorm. So heres the beginning of my build thread.
What I am starting with: http://www.petco.com/product/102093/Tetra-...at=FishFC_Tanks
So I decided I was going to drill the tank and make a mini sump compartment for it. I will have the water pumped back through a smaller pipe within the drain pipe . So heres my progress so far. Nothing is glued yet I have done a leak test and it seems to hold water fine without gluing but Im going to be siliconing it just incase.
Note: I am using aquarium safe silicon so no worries.
My stock list:
-yellow goby (once water cycles)
-a sexy shrimp (once water cycles)
I will be using coral, sand, frags, etc from my 100 gal.
So I got the new light put on it, some rocks, sand and water in it. So far it works great. I also added a heater to it. Heres update pics.
Any and all comments are welcomed.
