10 gal aio diy nano office tank

Here is my 10 gal AIO. Tank was a Petco 10 gallon tank, all of the plastic was removed and all corners were sealed with silicon. Filter box was made to size and sealed and put in before water was added. Copepods live in between the glass and the filter box.

First few pictures were taken about 1 month after it was cycled. Last pictures were taken this morning.

Tank has been running since end of 2018.

Looks good your a brave one removing all the reinforcement plastic trim. Those are made out of 1/8inch glass and imo not the strongest
