    I give you the product of extreme scavenging, insomnia, and its resultant late-night boredom:



    Project budget: $0
    Project cost: $0
    Inspiration: ZeroEdge
    Equipment list: 1G piece of junk acrylic tank; unused small fountain pump; super soaker something or other; plastic storage tub; and...drum roll...DREMEL TOOL!

    Since this was successful, it may serve as a prototype for a 3 Gallon Deco Kit mod. With a more powerful pump, the ugly center rod would be unnecessary. It has to be there because the fountain pump doesn't push enough head to pump water straight into the tank against the pressure. Because of the tube, it is more of an ATO than a true sump, there really isn't any circulation in the tank. I am thinking maybe a Fluval internal filter would be able to act as pump and filter using the design for a true sump.

    Detailed log with PICS to come...too lazy right now.

    Lol, thanks guys. hopefully i can have some future iterations that do interesting stuff. I cracked the bottom of the tank a bit earlier today messing with it, but it still seems to hold water. :(. Nothing a lil silicon can't fix anyway.

    A local S/W store has a custom tank make from lexan that is very similar to what you have just made.

    The fish-holding portion of the tank, is about 25 gallons and houses a few clowns...the water over-flows from this into a large 3'x5'x 8" deep "tidepool" that is home to some shrimp, sand dollars, and stars. It is an AMAZING setup. It's unreal to be able to look at the fish from all different angles as if there is nothing separating you from them.

    I'd love to build something similar!

    Good job, and best of luck with your next mod.
