Here are a couple of pictures of my tank. This is when I first set it up before I added fish.

Welcome to AA! That's some crazy tank... this may be a dumb question but where does the filter and heater and everything go? how do you do maintenance on this tank? do you need a ladder? seems like it would be a pain!

That is really cool and a little weird. I am almost at a loss for words. How heavy is it?

Everything is built in to the bottom of it while the top has a basic catch sponge and drip tray. It weighs about 75 pounds when full. The top opens up but its a narrow opening so cleaning is not super easy. But being such a small amount of water, it doesn't take too long to clean it thoroughly.

I wonder if you could do some low light planting and some DW in there. I like it. You can't have anything that gets very big but for some tetras that would be an awesome tank I would think!

MTS (the syndrome not the snail) may be not quite right. I always want a bigger tank so I guess I have BTS lol.

Maybe it's not an ideal tank but I think it's awesome!

Welcome to AA, that is indeed an interesting tank. Is that real/fake plants in there or is it just the background? What are the dimensions of it? I really like the tanks that go in the wall but I sure do agree that most fish need more room to swim.

+1 on the MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome) It hits you real fast! I joined here about a month ago with a 10 gallon tank and I already have two more lol
