Those would be cool little tanks to be on a stand in a bathroom. I am imagining someone going to the bathroom and watching the fish swim around.... LOL

Not sure where I am going to put them. I may put them in my living room. I already have 2 tanks in my living room 1 in the den and I am building another for the bedroom.

Well I cut some more glass this morning. I cut enough pieces for a 20l x 12w x 12h tank which comes to 12 gallons. I will be putting it together tonight and probably leak test it monday.

So I filled it this morning to leak test it and I noticed it is bowing in the middle of the 2 sides. How do I go about bracing it to stop it from bowing?

Never mind went out side to check on it and the whole bottom of the tank shattered. Guess it couldn't take the pressure.
