Really nice tank! I considered one this size/shape for my office desk, unfortunately a bit on the big side to have at work. Will consider one at home later this year though, love it!

If you want to see a sweet office tank check out the mini-m and 60-p in my sig! Where there's a will there's a way! Or is it if you build it they will come? Maybe both!!!

So, my wife took some awesome pics of my tanks when she got home from work today! (She's a much better photographer than I)

I'm lucky she's so supportive of my hobby!







Sorry, the tank is a bit of a mess.. brown algae, and I really need to organize and decide which plants can stay and which have to go. I want to simplify it.. any suggestions?





I love the Downoi..





This is one of my newest CRS. Very solid colors on the three new ones I got. I love the little white dots on his crown.





The Belem Dwarf Grass is uprooted a bit here.. It's recently planted, and hasn't established yet.





Mirror mirror on the wall... "Snow White" admiring herself.





You can see some of that horrid brown algae here. It wreaked havoc with my UG patch (not pictured) and I almost lost all of it.. Need to get rid of it..





Snow White and Was-Ebi are out on a date.





I think Was-Ebi ditched Snow White.. or she got side tracked by a mirror..




Thanks for looking!

Do you have almond leaves in the tank? It looks like the water is slightly tannin stained, maybe from the wood.

The night mode shot looks like there is a rave going on in there. Pretty cool.

Are you/your wife using a certain lens for the Macro shots or is that just the stock setup with whatever camera you own?

Thanks Nikki, they're not bad quality huh?

The fixture idea started because two of those lights didn't have room to fit side by side on top of the tank, so I had to figure out a way to tilt both to fit. Serendipitously, they seem to put out a better wash of light, going slightly tilted and the rays crossing.

I'm actually half way through making new ones, with nicer hard wood, and less hacked together. These took lots of trial and error to build! If you (or anyone else) wants to make some, I can send the exact measurements, or scan them at actual size to use as a guide, because it's pretty tricky to get just right.

PS. My wife LOVED that you said that.. haha. She's a shoe girl. They're her favorite thing to collect. She gets shoes, I get shrimp. Deal.

Thanks No almond leaves. I don't really know why the water is going yellow. Could it be the Aqua Soil? It can't be the wood, because I had that in a (much smaller) tank for a long time, and never got yellow water. That wood has been under water for about ten years! haha.

Stock lens.. Canon XTi.. (their base model I think)

My wife does part time photography (when she's not at her big girl job), so she knows her way around a camera. She always seems to take better pictures than me, with the exact same camera. Boo.
