Good call. I total forget these are 10 gallons and you can just about pick them up full and move them. Looking forward to this contest, wish more people would have gotten involved.

Crackerballer I would have painted the back, black or at least blue. That would keep you from seeing all the equipment/cords.

Adam_T's 10 Gallon Aquarium Contest Entry

March 1st is finally here! I actually took off work today to do a dozen+ errands and this was one of them. After a few debates with myself on which type of equipment and which type of powerhead to use...I think I figured it out.

Lets start off with a bit of information regarding my setup:

-1 Current-USA 18'' Nova Extreme T5HO Fixture ( $30)
-1 Koralia Nano ( $15)
-1 Aqueon 10 Power Filter ( $15)
-1 Jager 50 watt heater ( $15)

**$75.00 in equipment**

-20lbs of Live-Sand
-Estimated 5lbs of Live-Rock (so far)

For now, I have placed a few frags of Ricordias, Zoas, Pink Star Polyp and Frogspawn, but I believe all of this is going into my main tank, so this is all just in the tank temporarily.


1. Equipment: Since the 18'' Nova Extreme obviously doesn't fit on a 20'' tank, I cut a piece of glass to cover 3/4 of the tank, and set the lighting fixture on little rubber stands in place of the legs it came with.

2. Adding water & sand:

3. Adding rock & equipment:
