    This is my first attempt at converting a tank. I did 2 20gals at the same time to go next to my existing tank. I am pretty happy with how they turned out! Got a few plants installed and now waiting on some more to be delivered. Installed the mistking heads into the 20's as well as my original 18x18x24 tank. I need leaf litter and finishing touches still... thoughts?

    Looks good. Did you order conversion kits? What do you plan on putting in each one?

    No I made it all myself. I ordered a hinge for he front BUT I made a mistake when ordering my glass pieces. I was sold a 6mm piece of glass (which is pretty thick!). The hinge wasn't big enough to hold the glass so I had to think fast and ended up making the whole front piece myself. I created a track for the glass to slide into and latched it at the top. Used a piece of tube on the top of the glass to fit it very snug. Worked out great.

    Not sure what I plan to put in them. I'm hoping for some thumbs but haven't made any choices yet. Any recommendations?
