I just got a 20 gallon long yesterday, and it was planned on being used for my vertical vivarium project.
Well, plans have changed a bit, so I am going to be using this for a fish tank, who can resist?

I was given an opinion, which was to use my 10 gallon for the vivarium instead because there are no plans on keeping a live animal in the setup, so why not make use of the size and go with the fish tank.
I planned on using the 20, only because I like bigger tanks.

I am using the 10 because I can do smaller plants in the tank, and it's less of a giant project, leading to fewer things needing to be purchased for the actual build. aussieJJDude was able to explain this to me, so I went with this idea.

Anyways, I would like to upgrade my 10 gallon, and replace it with this tank!
My female betta will love the extra room, considering that she is a plakat, and extremely active.

I will post an updated photo in a little bit!

Only temporary but he loves it!

Oh, that's so sweet!
I absolutely love how you put the smaller hood on the 20, I thought about doing that for temporary reasons, but I will use my Finnex Stingray.

Here's the tank when it's finished!
It's just a bit cloudy, that'll cure overnight.

I was looking At that one, Ireally wanted the deluxe led economy hood but I can’t seem to find it anywhere
I’ve also been looking into a glass canopy and strip light

Speaking of a glass canopy, I use one of those on my 31 gallon, with a Marineland 11 inch LED light.

Where’d you get the canopy from? If you don’t mind me asking

It's custom-built, only bought the light

So, there's a little update.
I did some more scaping. It still needs more in the back, but here it is!

It needs high planting, and decorating due to it being a future sorority!
