    The last pictures are of what it looks like right now. Pretty darn bare.

    Am thinking some moss of some sort ... something.

    It looks great, definitely one of the best looking 5gal hex's ive seen

    I love how you called it a "thing" lol

    If the "hail mary" crypts would take off and bush up, I could get some frogbit or other floater for the top and then we'd be good, I think. Maybe. Maybe some subwassertang.

    But yeah, I call it "the hex thing" because I have, over time, gotten to loathe it. The footprint doesn't allow for a whole lot, as it is taller than wide. 'Scaping it is a pain in the ass. BUT! The boyfriend gave it to me for Christmas, so I keep it.

    When in doubt, do a water change.

    I didn't like mine like that because it was a PITA to keep clean. I just didn't like the filter I guess.

    How did you modify it for an AC?

    Cocktail jumped out one day and took a walk ... and I later found him in his "I'm an Olympic Jumper!" pose. He didn't survive it, sadly.


    As for the modification, I took the black top rim off the tank and then used a dremel tool to cut out the back half on the inside. Plopped the rim back on, and it still held both hood/lid things.

    I should take a pic, soon to show it. :)

    Please do! Because I would be interested on doing that to mine. I only had problems with the filter that is on the hex.

    I liked the footprint of it because it didnt take up much space- but aquascaping was a pain.

    Apologies for not taking the whole thing completely apart. And the dust on the lid.

    Anywho, you take the top rim off completely. Then you take a dremel tool to excise the back bit that holds in the filter compartment.

    This is what it looks like when done.










    You have to use the dremel with a cutting wheel on it and not snips or anything .. because the plastic is so hard.

    That is an awesome idea and I would have never thought to do it!

    Thanks!
