Hey Xetox! Thanks for asking..Though I'm not sure if I could help you much in answering them Confused : The tank is custom built by a store ( here in Amman-Jordan ), this store actually builds tanks for most LFSs here! I had a great deal because I went directly to that store and ordered my tank ( It was ready in a couple of days Very Happy ). I don't think they have any internet services.
As for the lights, I bought them from my favorite LFS: Jafar Aquatics. I have posted some pictures of this LFS on this forum; search for a thread called "my LFS's super tanks" ...

Cheers!

Thanks...that's two bad...you know for if you Had less that $30 bucks wrapped up in that tank.....you could make some money sell complete setup on eBay. With a tank that small shipping would be no problem.

We should talk Smile I do a lot of selling on eBay, I may be able to help you out.

I am going to do that search, I hope I can find lights like that either from them or local, they would be perfect for my fry tanks.

Hm, not bad not bad, but I've done cheaper Razz . At college we have setup a 4ft tank with filter, substrate, rocks and plants and have an mid-england small river setup with roach, tench, shrimp, gudgeon, crucian and some mirror carp (finding carp everywhere these days Confused ). Everything was 'borrowed' from the aquatics lab (hardware), ponds in the horticulture area (plants), from displays infront of buildings (rocks) and the fish from the hatchery or caught on pinkies from the river. Cost of

we don't have rivers here, so all our fish are just from LFS...too bad

Cheers!

Update!
OK, here is a new patch of pics:
I went to check on the tank after a couple of weeks and I was shocked by it's bad condition! it was actually smelly Evil or Very Mad , but after teaching my relative how to take care of the tank and after I worked on it, wonderfull things happened...
Here we go:

The tank after cleaning it a few days ago ( it's not smelly any more Smile )




Before trimming the plants - today-


Me working on it Cool


I've finally added the DIY CO2


Plants after trimming


Notice the new layer of fine gravel and the new second light bulb!


Plants are growing nicely, and I am willing to make a Java Moss foreground just like my 100L tank ( the grass was not successfull Sad )
Stay tuned for the next patch of updates!
Cheers!

Wonderful! You are a wonderful relative, great job. You don't have to add air bubbles? Could you explain a little about your DIY H20? It doesn't look like s soda bottle.
