I have a 70g corner bow. I used Eco complete and Eco cichlid sand in the front. It is hard to come up with a scape...... But I still love my tank. Also you will prolly want several water circulators to push water around, ESP if you are growing live plants and using co2. Jmho
THREAD REVIVE!!!!! so that last picture was about as far as I made it. Life happened and I never finished my project, so the tank and all the goodies have been in the basement. I think over the next few months I will get it up and running. Fall project.
Right now I am just shopping lights. Wanting to go all LED. Right now either finnex ray2 or ecoxotic panorama strips. I think I have given up on doing a DIY led fixture. It doesnt seem like the cost savings is really there looking at the price of these new LED fixtures.
