Version 4 was blacked out for over a week due to CO2 issues so I'm getting all the plants back to health before I rescape, lights came back on yesterday. The rescape may not happen for a while though, I have to see if I can do it with just the soil that's in the tank, cause there's no more AS powder or normal left at AFA or ADG and I'm pretty sure my next design would need at least another 3 liter bag if not 9l. Went to place the order yesterday and was so pissed
If anyone has some spare powder AS please let me know.
And yeah it's not a popular dimension because of the 30"... you pretty much need a hanging light fixture. I only have a 75P instead of a 90P because I bought this thing back when I was 14 (turning 20 soon) and that $100 difference was huge back when it was all the money I had and more (especially since it was for 6" and that's it, no other difference). If I were to buy a tank now it'd be a 90P for sure, I'd love that extra 6" of width to work with. The 30" really is perfect for a 150w MH though, and I just love MH shimmer. One day I'll have that 90P and some LED pendants for shimmer and extra space. For now the 75P is more than sufficient.
You'll have a lot of fun with this tank if you keep at it, the dimensions may seem a little strange be really do allow for a lot of creativity.
EDIT: version 4 is only using about half or a little more than half of the Seiryu I bought, so I still have new hardscape to play with. My goal with v.V is to create as different of a scape as possible with the same exact materials. Sieryu, HC, Xmas moss, and Eleocharis.
