    15 gallon column

    So as some of you know I've been using the yasha nano as a seahorse tank quite successfully for several months now. However after much debate I've decided I needed to do the right thing and give my horses more room to live in. The yasha only has about 7 gallons of display area.


    Built my own stand, I really liked the stand I built for the yasha so this will be the same just bigger.


    Cladding on the rather large plastic frame.

    Thanks to bush I made a rock center piece using dead coral.


    I was able to do a few very simple mods to my old bakpak and now the thing is a work horse so it should be more than enough to keep the tank clean

    That looks really cool. I like those yahsa tanks. Tried to win the one at Fragtoberfest and several at MACNA.

    Update moved everything over today. It's a bit crowded right now I'll probably remove a few pieces of rock. But so far the three ponies seem to love their new digs.

    I just need to get over and see it in person one day. Pics are always awesome but your little design nuances always intrigue me. That pony looks happy in his new home.

    Show off! Lol yet again you prove your DIY skills. The landscape lights have sockets that match the Aqua medic bulbs? Total cost?

    So 15$ per fixture and 30$ per bulb. It cost me 45 since I used the lights from the yasha. Put them and the power heads on toggle switches.
