Very impressive. Is that just illuminated switches in the 15 gallon stand on the top? Is this just something you made?

Would like to see some more closeups of the plumbing.

I am really amazed, you must have put some serious thought into both of theses tanks.

I would like to see a close up of the inside of the stands. I still cant believe what im seeing. You definetly payed attention to every detail the tanks are beautifully aquascaped.

How did I miss your tanks before? Wonderful. You make even equipment look great. I so wish we live close to each other. What are the plants in both tanks if you don't mind my asking?

Schematics?

You have a very beautiful setup here. I am wondering if you would mind posting a sketch of your schematics, something to give us an idea of how your plumbed your components together, and what components you are using.

I have a 5 gal with a dwarf puffer and shrimp, and I have been wanting to move them to a tank with fewer visible components. An idea of how you did this would greatly help me figure out how to DIY something similar!

bulkheads?

What kind of bulk heads did you use in your probing chamber?

The 5 gallon looks like it sits on the plumbing itself, and that there is no other support. Is that right?

Both tanks are very impressive. I am not sure what gadgets you are running, but it would be interesting to see a walk through of both systems. I am fairly certain you have more equipment on your 15 gallon than i have in all all my tanks combined, and all of them are larger (125, 55, 29, 20).

I have always kept my aquariums simple, but these setups make me want to attempt something more high tech. I have to say that i am extremely impressed, and that you have done an amazing job on the tanks.

The forum seems to have changed the URLs of the album images behind the scenes!

Thanks for alerting ;-]

Cheers,
Thanks for putting those back up. I found the link in another thread. Someone was talking about your plumbing work and I had to check it out. That looks awesome!
