Thanks. Here it is with water, plants, substrate, and lights! Its not full all the way cuz I don't have a glass canopy yet and don't want to ruin my lights. Canopy comes in tomorrow. Here are more pics:



Canopy is doulbe hinged so it folds up flat for easy access.


Day time lights.


Night time LEDs.

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

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.

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!

I use 2 (1 at the moment) canister filters which are stored below the tank, in the cabinet.
