All that Spec has is a little pump wth a media encased sponge filter. Yes it could work, or you might be able to pick up a section with slots at a lfs (our lfs has a bone yard of misc. parts, old lights, etc.) and glue it with 2 sides.

Seems like it would be easy to fix to do a DIY - not that I have ever done that, sounds like a great equipment or DIY thread? I also wonder about an enclosed sponge filter type cube low down about 6" wide x 4" high at the center bottom, then you would easily be able to have stones or plants in there and not see the filter. Airline tubing on the back corner with an 45 degree elbow at the bottom fitting to hide and you could have a nice tank with the look of no mechanical ugliness. Heater could be the same from the other back corner submersible.

Now I think I have a new idea for my rimless 11.4....

Sad, someone bought the shrimp... (who did it?!?) Anyway he's looking into whether he has some more of that quality for me.

Took my homegrown platys to the LFS today: the "Magnificent Seven" plus four from the main tank, including, I think, the male who started this whole mess. Trying to catch him in a heavily planted tank was an adventure... Yeah, that's the word for it.

Here's video of the Magnificent Seven (with one hiding), just before the Evil Net Monster came for them:

How rude of the anonymous shrimp buyer. I hope the seller finds enough to get your tank stocked.

I've been planning a bit of a trip to do some invert trapping. One of my mates has caught some glass shrimp (from his description) and a few years back I caught some other type of shrimp with ridiculously long claws compared to it's body. There's a long weekend coming up in Australia so I'll take a drive to both rivers and see what I can catch. I think I need 1 more sponge filter to set up two separate quarantine tanks.

Well, I finally finished off a bottle of wafers. I don't have placos. The one I got the two bottles for died because my tank was too clean at one point. Haha. And he didn't eat the wafers. But Gary (my snail) eats them. All the new fish and cories eat it too. My sunrise guppies are actually turning down pellet food to eat the algae wafers. Gary has been laying in one spot all week but seems alive. Hope he is okay. I did a water change yesterday and dripped some water on the glass. I have NEVER given my fish a day of fasting until yesterday. I did a water change and fasted them. It is amazing how it helps their digestive system and gets all the poop out. My new sunrise guppies are big poopers. Never had such poopers as these ones.
So anyway, they got clean water, conditioner and fasting. Long post for few words. Also, fasting day shall now become SUNDAY!
