Rimless Planted Shrimp Tank Build

Ok, figured it was time for another build thread

This time I'm doing a low light, planted shrimp tank. Oh, and the tank's rimless too. I have a crude picture taken a minute ago on top of a huggies box haha. I hope to paint the back today and at least get the substrate in (PFS). Not sure whether I'm going to do an ac 20 or not. I'd love to copy fort and do glass pipes, but I don't have a small canister available. Anyhoo, stay tuned for updates

Yes... and to be quite honest, it scared me. But... I had it sitting IN the bathtub filled all the way to the top for the last few days and it has held strong. I was a bit nervous about it at first, but I have no worries now. Oh, and Jenatron, it's your fault I did it because of your link I saw somewhere.

If it's just a plain 10G or smaller I doubt you'll have any problems. But your darn justified in being scared, I know I would be as well.
