Thanks! No, I'm from Queens/Long Island. I can't imagine one could even turn around in a room out in the city after installing a tank with this footprint out there.

What's your experience like with the Kessil? It looks like it provides a reasonable spread for the tank, but curious what your thoughts are since you can see it in person.
I like the Kessil a lot. Haven't had any problems with it. The only thing is you might think it's loud in the beginning, but after a few days, you don't hear it anymore. I've had computers over the years that have had more fans and louder than this. I have it about 13" off from the top of the tank and the circle of light covers the 36"x36" area below it perfectly. The light is more concentrated towards the middle, but it's not noticeable that the plants at the edges don't grow or anything-- it's about the same. I do have an extremely low-maintenance setup with low-light plants though, so you'll have to take that into consideration. I think the Kessil fits the aesthetic of the setup perfectly.

This tank has been sold to a local forum member. After some consideration, I decided not to take it with me before moving (getting a dog and a cat also "helped" with the decision). It was good while it lasted and I'll miss it, but hopefully we will see it again here under its new owner.

Thanks all for tuning in. Final update on the remaining tank inhabitant, running bare-bones for a week more before the final move.
