TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL STAND, HOOD, and SETUP!!!
From 1 fellow Woodworker to another, You did a FREAKIN' AWESOME Job on the Stand and Hood! I LOVE the choices of wood too!!! You obviously have the correct tools for the job + the Skills to use them! Like it was said before I believe Your Cabinet and Hood are the best I have seen here Yet! With Wkndracer's coming in a close second!
The wood you found is AWESOME TOO! PERFECT for the size of the tank, and you laid out the tank perfectly too! I can't wait to see it grow in! I am fixing to go to the build link and check it out.
AS for the Odyssea filter, I would REALLY, REALLY watch it! I was given one for some work I did at a buddies Aquarium Shop, and I got the SHAFT on that deal! It wasn't on purpose, as it was bought by the owner to Test out the filter when they first hit the market! It was the Eheim looking filter, but the input and output both came from the top. The filter itself was ok, but the quick disconnects were TERRIBLE!!! They leaked after a few weeks, and ruined a large section of the Parkay Flooring in our New to us Home! I was in the dog house for a while for that one!
SO I would get rid of it ASAP, or AT LEAST put a lager pan under it and add a Water Leak Detector in the pan so you will know if it starts to leak! You can usually find the Leak Detector at Lowe's or HD around the Water Heaters. They run around 10-15 bucks, but they will save your butt!
Anyway keep up the AWESOME WORK, and best of luck to You!
P.S. I have found when Glosso is growing toward the light the light is not strong enough! When I went from 2-55w CFL to 2-54w T5HOs my Glosso started growing along the substrate and not to the top!
