After our aquarium lights died we decided to double down and not only replace the lights, but also purchase the new glass tank we had been considering for over a year.

We ordered a 32 gallon tank, custom cut to fit our available space, from GlassCages.com. We basically paid for a 35G tank and they cut it to size for free. We also specified low-iron glass, which is more clear, and has less of a coloration than normal aquarium glass. It does look very clear I have to say.

It’s been up and running for a couple of weeks now. We’ve added some pea puffers, which are fresh water puffers that come from a river in India and only grow to one inch in size. The first shipment of plants has also arrived and been planted.

Here are a few photos from the tank as it looks today. You can click any image to see a larger version.
