Hanging Ray II

Love the tank man! I'm looking at getting the 60-p (same as your tank, right?) and hanging a Finnex Ray II above it. Not sure what it is, but hanging a light above a rimless looks so much nicer than plopping it on top! What do you think about the light so far? It seems to grow your plants well, and no "OMG algae" posts so far
Love the tropica 049, I was thinking of using that or HC as a foreground. Think the Ray II suspended at your height (looks like ~6in?) would handle HC and maybe some red plants?
Keep the posts coming!

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes, my tank is the Mr. Aqua equivalent of the 60-p and I agree that a hanging light looks much better on a rimless tank. I'd say that with this light and position I'd have no trouble growing HC and/or red plants.

I've been neglecting the tank a bit as I prepare for for the arrival of my first daughter. As soon as the I finish the nursery I'll get back to work on the tank and post some new pictures.

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.

How's this tank going?

I can't wait for updates!

(And I'm stealing your idea for hanging mounts)

The tank is going. Very over grown and under maintained at the moment. I've been really busy getting the house and my life ready for the baby to get here. less than 6 weeks to go

This has been an odd tank. Its the first time that I've had really no algae at all. I haven't dosed or done a water change in well over a month. I top off every couple of days and that's about it. Grows like crazy.

As soon as I get settled down with house projects, I should have a bit of time to focus on the tank before the baby arrives. I'll post up some pictures then.

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.

I bought it on Amazon. I think there is a link to it somewhere in this thread. Look back a few pages and it should be there.
