@ driftwood hunter, read many of your posts on hoppys thread thanks for the reply and the welcome. ive seen that pic posted before, your tank looks great!. And yes i would love if you could take a picture with the light raised because as stated the light will be a foot above water, are you using any special substrate,fertz or root tabs? idk if i should put any special subsstrate aside from the pond rocks ill be using...its an upgrade from a 65 gal tank so right now its bare bottom with nothing but turtles and a plecco in it, cant wait to get it started !! thanks for the help and sorry so many questions, im just a noob that has done a little reaserch..
