I've got some great news! We won the LED contest so I'm going to work on designing a new fixture for this tank. I'm very very very excited!

Here's a video about the contest, updates on the 5 and 10 gallon tanks, and some photos of my trip to Italy. I hope you enjoy!

I wanted to give a time lapse video a shot and here's the result.

It's not great but has definitely taught me a lot.

Next time I would like to find an angle that doesn't have so much reflection, lower the lighting and take a longer exposure (blur motion as well), find a way to cover up the scratch/turn around my tank, and do some more tinkering in a video editing software so I can use my intro and fade the music.

It took 3 hours to render the video...ridiculous!

Thanks Jingle. He is a pretty one.

I just uploaded a new video showing all the stuff I received from Gordon. He's a great seller and really gives you more than what you paid for.
