Changed tank height to 10" from 9 ", I think this looks much better. Also added the light which I will just make from a piece of aluminum channel.

Just ordered my tank, and I'm about ready to order the pump, heater, pipe, and fittings!

It looks like I will not be using a dimmable driver. I can't find one that I like. All the drivers with the features I want require external power supplies or other components I don't want to deal with. So fixed current it is. On the bright side, the driver I used on my last tank is great so I can just use another of those and it'll be a known quantity.

Sorry I don't have more pictures for you all yet, until I get the tank there really isn't much to do. I'll be home for a few weeks before school starts soon so hopefully I can start building the CO2 reactor and filter then. For now I have a few things I'd love to get feedback and opinions on.

Not sure how I want to arrange all the plants or even which species I want to use. I'd really like to try out hydrocotyle tripartita. Have any of you grown this before?

In the past my aquascaping generally just consisted of "tall in the back, short in the front, javafern on the driftwood". I'd like to try something with a bit more direction this time but I don't really know exactly what I want yet. A long pice of driftwood could look nice going down the tank. But I'd also really like to have some big rocks. I want to try not to use any plants I've had before but like I said I really haven't decided which. Suggestions?

If it isn't too late, maybe have a bit of swimming room in front of the filter?
Personally, I don't like to look at the filters after a while - they great at the start, but then they get annoying... if you know what I mean? - and the extra space is great for the fishies! Even if it is 3 to 4 inches.. I think you thank yourself later if you did it like that, but your tank, you know whats best

I love the tank, can't wait to see it all set up! I will be following!

That's a good point. I could try putting the filter in the back corner instead. This should also help the tank feel longer. Only problem is that I won't be able to see the CO2 reactor working, which I was kind of excited about. Oh well, I'll move things around again and post it up so you guys can see how it looks.

BAM

The cylinder next to the filter is the intake with a big sponge over it if you couldn't tell.
