Wanted to get this rolling. still lots to do but here is where I'm at today.

Tank: 130x18x20 Glass
Lighting: 24 Cree XML neutral whites down the middle 60 degree optics, 40 something xte- cool white and warm white. xte RB, 3 deepred, 4 cyan
plumbing: Bean Animal overflow with prefilter (full siphon 1.5", extra open channel 1.5", and 1" emergency)
Sump/wetdry: 60x18x20
Polish: Nu Clear 25 micron
Return: Iwaki 55 japanese motor
Flow: 2 mp40w es

Substrate: 108 liters aquasoil amazonia, PFS up front

more to come, I started out in the lounge and got some great help already.

Sub'ed to your build thread. Where did you get your tank? I was planning about the same stand setup.
