Just traded my old iPhone for an Eheim 2211. Should give me plenty of flexibility. If I decide to go the riparium route, I wouldn't have been able to use an HOB, anyway.
Also realized I've got some spare Zoo Med lamp stands. Which means I may just use a daylight CFL in a dome (already have both) suspended above the tank. Thank goodness my frugal side has kicked in for a moment.
Now I need to think about substrate. If I go the riparium route, I'll likely just use pool filter sand or Black Diamond blasting grit. If I decide to go all in on a scaped, planted tank, I've got both Aquasoil and Azoo Plant Grower Bed. Think I'll be waiting to see what kind of hardscape material I come up with before making a substrate decision. If I go with rocks, I'll probably use Azoo and keep Tangerine Tigers or something similar. If I go with driftwood, will also use Aquasoil and keep Blue Bees or Princess Bees, as I mentioned earlier. Time will tell.
