At present I have no aquariums due to downsizing to a 2 bedroom apartment from a house. Yes gone are the days of the 300 gallon reef tanks and it's been 2 years since retiring from the hobby. A friend of mine recently purchased a fluval edge 12 gallon back in May and like most people, they saw it setup nice on display, fell in love with the look and bought it. But now after a few months he complains he has no time for it and his wife ( who once liked the idea of having an aquarium that looked great ) is complaining and wants him to get rid of it because he doesn't take care of it and not realizing how much time and passion is required for the hobby. This is where I come in. Most people I no are allways trying to dump there aquatic equipment on me when they realize things are not working out or they loose interest. I purchased the edge for a silly rock bottom price. Follow along if you want as I transform the great looking (but not practical IMO) edge into something a little different. The build will consist of a custom stand, custom filtration, custom lighting and co2 as this will be a planted tank. There will be no real planning basically mod as you go LOL. Hopefully this will inspire some people to get involved with DIY projects which I believe is the strength of this hobby and hopefully this old dog can learn a few new tricks or it might turn out like crap LOL. Stay tuned.
