The preview looked very cool. Will be interesting to see your take on it.

I would if it were me, I really wish I considered SS when I bought pipes.

Just out of curiosity, why did you mount your CO2 setup outside the tank? I think if you are going for clean, it would look better in the cabinet.

It wouldn't fit :/ and I'm going more for practical meets award-winning, less than sleek. My mom said no more tanks until at least some kind of award or top placement or something in a contest.
