    Looks great and won't take much easier to keep them feed and the tank clean.

      This is one of those projects that when I saw it, I had to make it...
      the stained glass, rock and light was my idea, I used 10 different woods...
      this thing only measures 10x101/2...this a fun project

      thanks for looking, Trout

        Leave it to Trout to make a fish tank. You did a fantastic job.

          As usual you have taken a project to another level. The stained glass and other details really make this pop.What did you use for lighting?

              I started this project a month or so ago, I was into it for the first week but when it was time for the light and top the project come to a holt..
              I should of taken a picture of the light and how I have it mounted because that worked out good..
              I’m using a 15 watt appliance light, but it gets to hot so I’m need a smaller bulb...it won’t light up as much but that’s better than it catching on fire..

              i made this for my 8 year old grand daughter for her new room..

                I also used that self leveling plastic coating stuff on the rocks to hold them in place. That stuff is pretty cool but can get messy, I still have rocks glued onto my work brench..

                  Have you considered LED lighting?

                    I put in a little 5 watt night light bulb and it works just fine..it really is meant to be lite all the time...
                    Maybe the next time I try and light something up I’ll look into the LED’s...

                      Sorry, I totally missed this question, for CorelDraw, crop you pattern to the edges on all sides, then scale the pattern to 100mm x 100mm then export that to PDF. What that does is than anyone can take you pattern then make it fit any coin by just printing to a percentage that matches the size of the...

                      I have used several different epoxy. I use 5 and 15 minute epoxy for most things. I use the Bob Smith brand from Amazon. I mix it in small pill cups and measure by weight with a cheap small digital scale. One does need to be careful as it is not mixed one to one by weight and you have to check directions....
