I thought I'd have some fun this weekend, so I decided to put together a nano tank.

The almost complete lack of typical greenery in the glass is because this is PPG Starphire glass. Wonderful stuff!

Details:
1/4" starphire glass
Outer dimensions-4.5x4x6H (inner: ~4x3.5x5.75)
Assuming 1" of substrate and water 1/2" from the top-> 0.21g

Not the most perfect job on everything, but good enough. The bottom is a little sloppy on the silicone, but I didn't care cause the substrate will cover it.

Tony, Nice idea.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the standard method of making aquariums was to let all the sides rest on the bottom sheet.

In NYC we have a good selection of acrylic dealers and I am looking into making a small test tank of 24 x 16 x 16 with the bottom sheets supporting the rest...
