    Looks nice!
    Is the tank heated? How do you avoid the plants from reaching the heater?

    It's not heated now but it will be this winter. I'm going to find a heater that's small enough to fit in the Penguin 100 HOB for this tank. Also, due to the fact that we now have 5 males needing a tank of their own I may use bulkhead fittings and PVC pipe to connect a total of 6 of these Tetra 1.5 gallon tanks together and use a small canister or DIY wet/dry filter to clean them all. If I do the DIY wet/dry then one heater can heat all 6 tanks.

    Or better yet...

    5 more Tetra 1.5Gallon tanks: $100
    8 clamp lights @ $7 = $56
    8 GE 15Watt 6500K CFLs = $20
    1 10 gallon blank for sump = $10
    1 50Watt heater = $20
    1 Marineland Penguin 150 = $25
    1 Circulation Pump = $25
    1 PVC solvent set = $7
    12 Bulkhead Fittings = $60
    Various PVC fittings = $10
    PVC pipe = $15
    40lbs Eco-Complete = $40
    ======================
    $388 + taxes and incidentals = $420

    You get 7 different habitats sharing a total volume near 19 gallons filtered by one Penguin 150. The 10 gallon "sump" is simply just another tank in the circuit. I think "Impressive" as a descriptor for this setup is a weak term. :)

    Sark

    Something sorta like this... heh
