Dutch-ish, then Ohko Ocean, now 'Peaks'

Hello planted tanks fans,

Back in Feb this year I started a 30gal build. This and another forum were a huge help. The tank is pretty much filled in now, but I thought i I'd share the details and some pics here. Probably should have started a thread here at TPT at the beginning, but better late then never.

I'll start with the specs and I'll post progression pics shortly (gotta fish them out of my hard drive first).

Hardware

Thank you very much

As you can see, it's been quite a transformation. Just look how much dwarf hg I started with (second photo).
