Tank is very awesome sir.
Thanks for the information. I've decided to do glass. Found a good deal locally but I'm still figuring out the details of what I want to do.

I'll see what I can do with that. Doubtful I'll get that pattern, however.

Hey Tuan I'm sorry if you've posted this before. But what camera/lens are you using to take such great shots?!

Camera used is a Canon 5D Mark II with either a 17-40MM f/4L, 50MM f/1.4, or 85MM f/1.2L lens. I believe most of those shots are from the 17-40.

As far as I can tell, there's no flex whatsoever.

2/8/2012 Update
Randomly lost 6 shrimps last night. Unsure of what's going on but I tested the water parameters and everything was more or less within the acceptable range. A little puzzled.

Bonus update:

What material is the black counter on your 40b stands? I am thinking of remaking a stand for my rimless and try something other than plywood.

I've had a severe crash in the population for unknown reasons lately, and it's been a little disappointing. In the past week, I've lost about 12 shrimps. Been doing insane water changes to try to flush out whatever it is that's killing everyone. If things don't turn around soon, I may have to remove all the shrimps and detox this tank.

I'll take a FTS once everything settles down!

It's actually just a higher quality piece of plywood (4x8) from Home Depot. I spray painted it black and then painted a clear coat on top to protect it from moisture. The total cost was about $90 for the entire two stands you see there.

*2/12/12 - Tank is currently in detox mode.*
I came home to find more dead shrimps for no known reason. Due to the recent crash in the tank, I am going to remove most, if not all, shrimps and detox this tank. In the past two weeks, I've lost more than 70% of the shrimps in this tank and really don't care to lose any more. I've relocated all the survivors to the breeder tanks. I'm hoping to get some K-14s and black tigers in this thing once everything settles down.

In the meantime, I'm doing monster water changes daily with pure RO and will dose the hell out of this thing. I might up-root all the HC and replant them. This is gonna mucho sucko.
