You can do it in a 10 gallon even! You'll have to sacrifice some room of course but depending on how you do it it doesn't have to be that much! Right now I have two golden killies, a rainbow shark, and a blue lobster just dying to get in there. The tank is going to be Asian themed, so I'm trying to think of a nice stock to add, suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Good luck!

Yeah I'd like to have a very nicely planted aquarium but unfortunately I bought a kit for this tank and the lighting is trash. I think it's something like only 8 watts. I like the sleek look of the thin hood and led lights which makes me want to keep it, but some where down the road I may upgrade. Thanks for the luck!

So far I'm 30 hours deep in total hours worked on this project, but I'm sure it will be 100% worth it, go for it ! It's pretty cheap to
