HAH! Just when I thought I didn't physically have any more space for tanks.

One day I will make a room where the walls are comprised entirely out of wall-mounted fishtanks. Will post pics when it happens :D

Pick that up after work today. It came with an 8W T5 and mini filter. All I need to add is a 50W heater.

It is already on the wall with ada and water. Only a 2 gallon tank. Added a mirror mylar behind to give it more depth.

I will host shrimps from Patrick and Mosquitio Rasbora and a few others small fish from April which I forgot the name already.

Will post picture once the water clears and the livestock transferred over.

Voila!
Plants from Anthony and Stuart, fish from April, shrimps from patrick.
Added another 8W T5 from Home Depot to a total of 16W. Hope that is enough light for the plants - water is only 8" deep.

BTW. Over 10 years in salt water. Just got back into fresh with a 30 gallon old planted tank given to me from a friend just before Christian. This wall aquarium is my fresh water #6 - replaced the rimless I bought from Stuart which will soon become fresh water #8 :D My wife been saying a new tank every two week counting the two betta tanks I just shut down.

Don't know how I mess up the thread.

You can order from Aussie Aquarium, I think that little guy is over $400 new.

Thinking about custom building a larger one already - 36"L x16"H x4"D ? The frame and support does not look hard to do - in fact they use high density particle board :! There could be from the 100s of laminate available whether aluminum or formica. Daniel coudl probably make a pink one as well :)

Acutally thinking of using glass mirror for the back. Not too many SF of glass. I am estimating the glass cost should be well under $100. Good fall project.

Will keep you all posted.

If you really want a super clean look you could drill a hole in the wall behind the aquarium and run all the wires through to an electrical outlet the other side.

I saw some at Sam's Surplus in Burnaby, in the industrial park off of Marine Drive. They had a few sizes, including some large ones, but they wanted some coin for them...
