    While scaling down I descovered my custom aquarium, 67cm x 20cm x 10cm. I origanally had this piece of wood in here but moved it to the panaque aquarium. But I could not part with it. Because I changed the set-up of the fish room, and reduced my aquariums to only three, I had the space dor this one.


    So in the end I actually reduced to 3 and a 1/4 aquariums.


    Total water volume is 4,1L, with wood it's closer to 3L. Moved all my Buce I kept in here. Also added some Neo shrimp to it, just to keep any algae at bay. No filtration, only a circulation pump, and small heater

    Short video of aquarium. Sorry for glare on glass. Lighting is only 2 x 9W led down lights.

    Yes I remember this one. It was supposed to be a Pico style tank.

    100% right @Rainstorm. Started a long time ago. Was always bumping into it and then it was moved to the panaque tank.

    Now it has grown in nicely and works way better on my drawing desk. Sit and watch it and forget about drawing some times, and then the mind starts thinking about more aquariums

    Yeah @Pierré Schoonraad it does look really nice, you know what would be great? Add some Hydrocotyle tripartita to a portion of the tank.
