Mott's ADA 120p "Pathway to nowhere"

Hi all, I've been collecting stuff for this tank for two years now and FINALLY I have it together and planted

First off I wanted to reinforce the stand because it's a little old and I just "feel" safer now

Underneath:





After a quick sanding and painting, I think it came out pretty good!




The Lights: 4X54 T5HO by Catalina during the modding for the hangers:





Done


Constructing & hanging of the Lights:







Finally in place and ready to go!



Above shot:

Finally! I've been waiting to see what you did with your putting green

Nice layout and good luck with the UG.
