Well I ordered a Current USA LED plus fixture for the tank, and got my glass lid.

I'm probably going to switch to the buildmyled.com lights later, but that's not until I get a proper CO2 system. Well and when I can understand them at least a little!

I don't know what kind of filter you have yet, but I have a 4 month old Penn-Plax Cascade 700 Canister Filter with new media that I'm trying to get rid of...interested at all?

I'm still trying to decide on a filter, I have a EHEIM professional 3 that my grandma had in a 20G, or I can get some other one that might work well in my tank.

I'm not really familiar with that filter but i'll look it up, and I might just buy it from you.

I also dipped the back black, so it's all ready to go.

I would gladly do it, I got plenty of the stuff!

It only takes about 30 minutes to do.

I've never used Plasti Dip before. How did you do it?

You just clean the glass, use painters tape on the sides and trim, and then spray away.

First coat has to be light or it will drip, second coat can be heavier, and third heavier and so on.

Give it 10 minutes in between coats, and at least 30 minutes to dry.
