I think it looks nice. Is that a 10 or a 20?

Mattcot 11-22-2010 02:26 PM

The inside measurements are 59cm x 30cm x water level 28cm 49560 which is 49.56 liters or 13 Gallons
but I have about 6 KG or live rock and 1KG CC and pump and other items of which displaced's about 1.2 liters
which leaves my tank with about 12.77 Gallons

if my working out is correct.

Looks very nice... My opinion (dont take offence) it does look a lil bit cluttered.....

I think you will appreciate the "cluttered" look when you begin adding fish. The more rock the better in a small tank to help break up territory and make the fish feel more at home.

that is only 13 gallons!! wow i thought it looked a little closer to a 20 or so.. nice work!!! i love that piece off center to the left.. as for clutter its all a matter of personal opinion... me i say get some more rock in there like a little shelf piece and make a cave...

I agree, add more rock. This would be a great time to use cable ties to secure the live rock together also, which can be handy when building overhangs and caves.

Hoover and Dyson? Classic! I bet Dyson does a better job than Hoover. ;-)
The tank is looking good!
