Sweet carpentry! I'm going to have a similar task in the not too distant future.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

That's nice, Josh.

I finally get to see your tank filled with water. The long wait is over.

How are your plants? Still growing too fast? I have a Nymphaea stellata still growing very fast when I don't use CO2 and ferts anyway.

Exactly how do you have the lighting set up? What type of flourescents, and how do the LEDs fit in? Looks very cool.

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

I have the 48" Coralife Lunar Aqualights Compact Fluorescent Strip Lights.

2x 65watt 10,000K tubes
2x 65watt Actnic tubes
4x Moon Glow LEDs

2.9watt/gal. Timer is setup so the 10,000K and Actnics are on from 10am to 10pm and the LEDs are on the rest of the time (they use barely any power). Thanks for the comments!

are there any more updates here ?
:)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
