    I built an aquarium a couple weeks ago out of a G4 Cube enclosure I bought off eBay. Finally got around to taking pics and making a write up so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

    Great job!

    ...please tell me it wasn't a working G4 cube... I've been hunting around for one on the cheap for my daughter. :D

    Lol, nope. The enclosure was actually pretty damaged with scratches and a huge dent on one side so I'm guessing who ever owned it before dropped it and the computer stopped working.

    Couldn't agree more. It took a while, but I eventually managed to get one of each in good working conditions without paying through the nose.

    If I ever find a non-working Cube, I might build an aquarium too. :)

    Looks nice, but that's a pretty crowded aquarium.

    I know, it is crazy the amount of waste fish can produce. I've had small tanks before but I underestimated the capacity of a 1 gallon tank. But it's no biggie, they are now officially part of my main 30 g. aquarium which has lots of buddies for them to chill with.

    I'm mainly using it as a quarantine tank which can also serve as eye candy. I'll probably end up getting a Betta fish once I'm done populating my large aquarium so that I don't have to clean the tank every day.
