    It is a 3g cylinder type tank. And then I made a spounge filter for it that is covered by the coral piece. and Made the Lighting out of the Blue LED strips that you can get at auto zone or advanced. Then Used a 12v DC adapter to power the lights. and atached them to the lid. The tank origanly had no lights and a gravel filter which didnt work well to begin with.

    Wow that's really cool! I saw plans on how to make a tank of a tool box the other day. I'm tempted to try it lol.

    Its pretty cute. Endlers would do better in that sized tank and give you the same 'glow' effect.
    Pretty cool how you made it though!

    The cylinder type tank is useful for small number of fish.
    Its handling is also easy and provide good experience for
    fish keeping.
