Default "Trashy" tank...

I found something totally neat!!!

Check out the tank at the bottom of the following page:
http://www.petfish.net/nano_plant.htm

Isn't that great?! I'm not crazy about acrylic, but what a great use for a clear garbage bin... He-he! I also love how the lighting was done for the bowl. Very cool.

I'm starting to get some funny ideas...

That is one nice trash can! Good thing they aren't common where I live. I already peruse Bed Bath & Beyond and other home stores, looking for something just like that! lol
My gf is probably tired of my saying "look, a pond!" when I go through the rubbermaid storage container sections of stores.

Now that's the ticket. I am going to use those in my next emerse project. Imagine that "can" full of giant red crypts,and pella on the bottom 3 inches thick.

One of the best pico reefs I've seen was made from a 1g clear acrylic paper shredder bottom. Some people are so creative!
