the light fixture is an older model of the coralife 18w fixture. (they should make more because of how sleek and compact it is). its laying on top of a piece of pexi glass that stretches from one side to the other. Nothing fancy. Just looks nice because the light fixture is flat :P

I might just try fluke tabs and see where it goes from there.

The logo is just a sticker. You can scrap it off with a razor blade.

Chis are nice to display. It's the most expensive 5.5g aquarium you can ever purchase as a plant hobbiest.

Patience once drove a man insane

Thanks for your time

I'm sorry to hear that! May I just ask how the aromatica grew for you and how you maintained it?
