I also got new bubble wands for my tank. I think they are doing a decent job for my fish. I dont see anyone doing the light gasping they were doing.
I installed the new bulbs too...any see a difference in brightness? I dont see much. I am saving the old bulbs in case these go out early.

Cute :)! Love angels! Lots of new pretty fish!

The smell is the only complaint I have on the aqueon water changer. It just smells like cancer when you first open it up. Lol. I was afraid to use it for filling until I ran water a few times draining. But it goes away and it works great I love it. The tube is flexible and it's nice. Some people complain about it wasting water but you don't have to leave the water on. I just let gravity do the work and only let water begin the suction which is awesome. :D

Edit: Wow! Your tank overall looks AMAZING! The plants look great!

I figured as much. New plastic, it smells really weird XD
Thanks much! I am actually gonna try out some plant trades with my hygro stems, get myself a large sword and some other types of stem. I'd like some Rotala.

Thanks!
I've come to like the bubbles as well. I never liked the bubbles before. Thought it looked too unnatural. But it's alright. Lol

I got my versa top in! It's about a 1/4" short on each side. But the glass is pretty heavy. I don't think it's gonna slide over and fall in anytime soon. And the light goes through much brighter than my plexiglass top allowed.
1st picture, not sure if you can see it, the glass is literally just barely on the lip!
