That's very nice, I really like how the simple clean lines of the stand and rimless tank bring all the attention to the contents of the tank. What kind of rocks are those and where did you get them?

Awesome tank. I have a 55 gallon and stand in my garage that I was going to sell, but since I have all the pieces i might go with a tank set up like this.
I have been doing a DSM 2 gallon pico, and it seems to be filling in nicely, so now i have the itch to set up the larger tank again.

Hi guys

I have a question, is the 6x54w ATI sunpower light unit to much light for this tank. I am looking at upping the lights and I can get a new ATI at a good price. ANy of you had experience with this unit?

Thx

okay so it was rescaped time. good thing to do when waiting for 2012 to end and 2013 to start. took me 2 days but i finally did it.
I added ADA substrate additives and powersand and some new aquasoil. so now i am sitting with 60L of substrate.
The rocks are 20KG of ryouh stone. And i just love the detail on those rocks.

So pics

Really nice! Looking forward to seeing the new scape grow in.

BTW - That was a pretty ballsy move leak testing the rimless indoors.

Hi DogFish, I am really gonna have a fun time trimming this scape to awesomeness!!

And it looks like i leak tested it inside but it was on the back stoep, so if it would have leaked all the water would have gone straight to the grass outside.

but thanks for the comments.
