I'm building an 880 gallon this winter. (first build) - - - on your gumball aquarium, make sure you have no exposed metal parts in the tank. you can coat them if you cant remove them with some kind of clear acrylic applicae.

for an additional tip which I think might look cool, find marbles that look like classic gumballs for your bottom of the tank.

It should be very very easy to convert this, if you havent already, and would look really cool, just make sure its in a stable place where it cant get accidentally knocked over...

That's awesome!! Good luck with you build I would like to see it completed...
I think we got it. We just used the bowl and not the whole thing. I still
Wanted to use the rope lights I did find some really cool marbles online... They look just like gum... I'm still browsing filter/lights/heater options.
