also i hate how without a canopy the light spreads out away from the tank alot more lightin half the room , obviously depending on the distance it was raised, and if u need to get to ur lighting that often something is wrong with the setup in my eyes, the only thing i like in the tank is intake and output. nothing else when it comes to equipment i side with the looks that most of the ada tanks do. but i like it through the bottom with bulkheads with pvc and have the scape hide them.

well I was planning on setting up my 10gal sump/refugium with my heater in it but not sure if my current heater will fit I'll have to wait and see.
as for lighting /canopy my other tanks have T5HO and my 40 has LEDs. I love planted tanks but my main focus on the tanks are my Angels.

Can you post any pics of that? I was planning a 10 gallon quarantine tank for mine to keep in the stand, petsmart has a very basic 10 gallon kit that I imagine will work. I'd like to see how someone else has that done.

Thanks

Probably not even planted... I'm talking as simple as can be... Gravel and PVC in it for fish to hide in, just a holding tank for quarantine, nothing for show.

Here's mine



Still working at getting it set up, I ordered the stand last night, and I just have a bit of small items to buy before I am able to set it up.

Thanks for the props, guys...always a work in progress! That's the fun isn't it?!

Kayen, I think you mean this one:

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/my...e_verticillata

That plant grows explosively and propagates via runners. If I neglect it for 2+ weeks I have to get it out from behind spray pipes, the intakes, off the tank edges. I love it's looks though.

I would love to look at your tank(s) but I have a DNS block on my work machine that won't let me see photobucket pix. Draconian things...
