Really cool project, especially the way you mounted the lights. And I love the new scape! The additional lighting (pods?) really make the plants glow.

What did you build up the banking with? It looks a little like clay.

This is fantastic, great job on it. Do you know the specs for the lights? Like watts/color temp, etc.

I say stick with the small fish for a tank like this. Cichlids would enjoy more room in my opinion. Awesome either way.

Wow! You've got some nice weeds in the wild wild woods. That tank is awesome. I agree with vincenz - smaller fish would be best. In fact, I can picture harlequin rasboras or ember tetras in there.

WHoaaaa! People! Thank you So much! I didnt expect so many great comments.
Lighting is very small Halogen spotlights. One is sorta like this http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/10119334/ but has 3 lights and one extra light i turn on for the fotos that has 2 more spotlights.

It used to b clay, but clay melts and doesnt stay up, so this time ive literally used cement

as for the fish, imma get som Cockatoo apistos (such as Trickerie has suggested) maybe tomorow

cheer y'all! xxx
