    I built this fish tank by hand from two Apple / Mac computer monitors.
    The tank holds 12-14 gallons of water.
    This tank was designed as an aquarium, so the submersible filter is built in.
    The tank could also be used as a terrarium for reptiles, insects, or small mammals.
    If used as a terrarium, one could easily replace the included pump with a heating pad / rock, using the built in power cord.

    In addition to the tank you will receive:

    The black / grey gravel (originally $30+)
    The brown rock 'hide' (originally $10)
    The sabertooth skull 'hide' (originally $10)
    The air pump (originally $15)

    The T-Rex skull was broken and discarded since the photos were taken which is the only reason it is not included.
    Because the tank is made of acrylic, I would not recommend using it to house animals with nails / claws, because they would scratch the plastic, ruining its transparency.
    More images and a short video are available at
