I think I have 4 Angels and 2 ABN's currently in that tank not doing too much to that tank for a while as I am getting ready to move to the east coast
i have the aqueon glass lid for it, seems fine for the weight, its tempered glass, normally a lil more heavier than normal plate glass form what i have noticed working with glass at the glass shop i used to work in making vinyl windows/doors
triple strength glass a 8x12 sheet omfg heavy
Glad yours are working for you though. Lets try to be more open to differences in equipment here! lol
I'll probably try to go without a lid on mine, mostly cause I live in So Cal and I'm afraid a lid will enclose too much eat and I may not be able to keep temps down enough. When I had a reef tank set up I occasionally had to turn fans on over the tank to get evaporative cooling going.
I used to have 3 shop lights with CFL bulbs on this tank other than blinding the SH!T out of me when I looked at the tank I thought it was great for lighting under $20
I bought a 36" LED 120 bulbs w/ 9 blue I think it said it put's out 10k
vote is still out on the LED Light, it looks good but I think the plants were doing better with the CFL's (my wife would disagree)
i shop for function and cost, if i want the tank to look "nice" ill make a canopy to hide the lights whether i choose a t5ho light for example or shop lights, to me, everytank looks like garbage unless it has its lights completly hidin
I had a canopy before on a reef tank, I didn't like the look all that much.
The one thing I DO like hidden, filtration and heating equipment, but others like easy access to it all hehe
