I'm looking to set up a Pico tank. I would like to see your tanks to get down some ideas.

I plan on building it from acrilic sheets and silicone. Any tips?

Got any stocking ideas(coral)?

Ill keeo you updated.

Silicone does not stick to acrylic well enough to build an aquarium out of it. It would likely split at the seams once full.

Check out this video on bonding acrylic:


lots of pico's to browse over in the nano forum: https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/nano-reefs.89/

WIth the Mini-complete tank contest kicking off those have been my favorite threads lately.
