Yeah, the one that's on my/this tank now! (Marineland LED Double Bright 36" to 48") You should buy it! It's a shame because I just bought it when I was setting this new tank up, but I won't be using it so I was thinking of putting it on the Swap and Shop for $80 Shipped and PayPal'd

Hah, you picked a good day....I'm about to tear this tank down completely, and not set it up again. Just didn't turn out the way I wanted and I have no desire to spend any more money on it. I don't think I've even turned the light on for over a month. My one 60P tank is enough....

oliver77 Looks great. but i'm a little worried of that stand? will it be able to hold that tank filled up for a long time?

marioman72 looks great even as it is! def going to be be even nicer once everything fills in

TickleMyElmo Just a quick snapshot. Looks really crappy right now, plants and rocks went flying and uprooted when I filled the tank. It'll look great once it fills in, trust me

TickleMyElmo Progress! I removed the black background today...what a hassle! I could have sworn I used latex based paint, but apparently I actually used oil based paint because it was super tough to remove. Had to use a glass scraping tool with razor blade and and it was more efficient but still took a while.

Remind me to never do that again lol...

Thanks man I'm keeping it low-light/low-maintenance, it'll be nature scape style with a little bit of manzanita driftwood.

Plants will be only be E. Tenellus, Bolbitis, Java Fern, and some moss.

Not sure what I want fish wise, but it'll very likely be a larger number of one type of schooling fish. Sick of the 5,000 different types of fish I had in my old 40B. Want to keep it clean and simple
