    This is my custom made corner tank with homemade cover (now looking a bit tired).
    It's just under 200 litre capacity and filtered by an eheim pro 4+ 250 with 3x under tank heatmats which do a good tidy job.
    Lighting is by cheap ebay 5v RGB led strips and an old hot water/heating cotroller for timing functions.

    Full tank shot... set up a month or so now, new Malawi cichlids set up.

    Tank and cabinet are custom built, 99 x 26 x 26, sumped. 1200l total volume.

    Believe it or not, there's just over 50 fish in there! Need more rock and lights, which I'm ordering tomorrow :)

    Here's a pic taken just now and one of it in its former glory as a reef...

    How much would something like that cost?

    About time I uploaded to this thread!

    Tanks 1, 2 & 3 house Guppies, Swordtails, Opaline/Golden Gourami, Albino & Peppered Corydoras, Bristlenosed Plecos, Mollies, Whitcloud Mountain Minnows, Platies, Black 
    Tetra, Kuhli Loach and various snails.
    All using homemade filtration systems and LED lighting.
    The cabinet is in my utility room and behind it is a loo/wet room.

    Tank 6 was something I found thrown out down the road and currently has Betta called Barry with some Neon Tetras and various snails.
    The filter is one of those built in over the top set ups which I have customized and the lighting is using an LED bulb from Poundland.

    Sorry for the image quality, been a long while since I’ve picked up a camera for photos. Also Tank 3 is a bit messy due to the plecos having a little feeding frenzy


    I've got a few more to add to this thread in the future :)

    Here is my attempt at an aquascape. It's my first tank (only 125 litres) and never done this before, so have made heaps of mistakes, not least was considering what substrate would be visible through the glass at the bottom and putting the sand beach layer deeper there  *oops*
    All rocks and plants are from Aquarium Gardens.
    The filters were already fully cycled with a large koi in the tank, so no issues so far with water quality adding the new fish.
    I have 5 rummy nose tetras, 5 cherry barbs and 3 dwarf neon rainbow fish so far. I plan to add a few more so each kind has a shoal of at least 6 once I'm happy everything remains fine with the tank.

    I've also just bought a glass inlet and outlet pipe for the filter which I haven't fitted yet so that will look nicer. Considering a blue sea looking background for the back of the tank so the wall doesn't show through it, but not sure yet. Don't want it to look fake. My partner says it looks like I just dumped some rocks in there  roflmao

    I think it's a fantastic effort, I would paint the back and sides with matt blackboard paint which can be removed if required in the future. Regarding the front where the sand looks a bit messy, I would cut up a cheap tupperware box or bowl to create a barrier to retain the sand then back fill with gravel against the glass front.

    The first two pics are of my previous tank, Juwel Lido 120. Not the most recent pics but in an earlier shape and form.

    Pics 3 & 4: I've recently got a bigger second-hand tank, Rena brand, nearly 200litres, and moved all my lifestock over. Its a simple tank with endlers, 1x bristlenose, cherry shrimps & amano shrimps and some assassin snails, plus easy to grow live plants.

    My current aquarium, soon to be joined by an identical one that will house the Kissing Gourami that are in here causing chaos - they are called vettel & Hamilton since they spend alot of time chasing each other, Hamilton likes to view himself in the mirror side and vettel throws tantrums and ends up hanging onto the Pleco's tail til shaken off, then Vettel & Pleco retreta to a safe distance and give each other the evil eye

    I digress...the aquarium is 84 litre, live planted, silica sand & gravel...Neons, Black Neons, Pristellas, Bronze Corys, Pleco...and Vettel & Hamilton
