Thanks all... I am having fun and learning LOTS.
I have the tank setup with X-10 controlers and run them from my PC.
The floursecents and CO2 are set dawn to dusk
The halides come on from 11am till 3pm
The blue LEDs and ait pump are setup dusk till dawn.
The timers are cool.... that way I don't forget anything, but I real like the remote control:

Looks awesome! I love everything about it! Exspecially the driftwood it all looks very natural.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Thanks all.... I am pretty new to the hobby and it is a real boost to hear all the good comments
Curt.... I got most of the plants from Plamski here on the board.... he has lots of trimmings, and at That Fish Place.
I got my first tank in October of last year.... a little Fluval Chi, for on my desk.
From there it went kinda nutz LOL



Sorry about the rock on the driftwood.... It still wants to float.

From there I got a 55:




Then the 125. Wich you all have seen

After that I got a 20... it was too good of a deal.
Last weekend I redid that tank and got a spotted puffer



The little tank is for his food

Oh .... I almost forgot... I got a 5gal for in my kids room. They each have a Betta.




All but the Chi have come from Craigslist and have been awsome deals. Most of the decorations have come from there as well. The stump is the only thing I bought retail and as I said earlier... it was miss priced and only cost me $12.99

MY NAME IS BRIAN..... AND I HAVE AN ADDICTION
