My 10x2.5x2.75 mini SEA Aquarium


Recommended Posts

So I sold my 5 feet tank


and started this SEA aquarium at my new place.

My only wish is :

New tank has to be 



-taller than the old one


and tank has to be at the foyer area, at the door entrance. So that once we come home , we get to see the tank FIRST.


New tank will be predominantly fishes ( not FOWLR ) and simple corals like softies as well as some inverts.


reason : for easy maintenance since mainly fishes and I can’t seem to keep corals anyway


So first thing first , construct the foyer area as the original house doesn’t come with one…

Also construct a drainage pipe to drain water out during water changes

Tank delivery in Jan while house still finishing up some  renovations ( to be in time for CNY )


Profile stand for the lights by Prestech

installation by myself and as the stand is super heavy to lift and drilled into the wall, really need the help of the workers


this light-stand project was so shag! I should have engaged someone to settle for me
