How does that ikea coffee table works? I have one too but its not for my tank. I'm just afraid that if I do use it, it will not support the weight and might warp the wood (reconstruction wood).
Yes it's particle board, but it's completely solid. I ran my 20g long SW tank with 75 lbs of live rock, moved it a couple of times in 2 years without any issues of warping. The table is surprisingly strong.
X2, that's what I went with on my current 20g long. Something overly simple, yet looks very beautiful.
Trimmed the tank again about a week ago. The algae problem is slowly going away and the HC carpet has made a complete comeback. That being said the tank looks completely different in a week from what you see in these pics. I'll see if I can snap some tomorrow. It's due for another trim as well.
I still need to buy a real heater as you can see. Also need to run new CO2 lines as they're too short with the diffuser on the other side.
