pandacory Wow! Thanks for digging this up Jimbo!

This has got to be one of my favorite framed aquariums and certainly top of the list for hardscape only set ups. I really like the low profile look of the canopy cover.

The lighting is spectacular.

But jeez, you must be very diciplined. No way I could resist not planting some crypts or swords as a minimum! Some of the rarer crypts around the root base would be very interesting.

I am putting this thread in my bucket "ideas to steal later"

jimbo662 Wondering how the sump is working for you? I'm contemplating setting up my first discus tank and would rather use a sump than canisters.

alipper A+++ on the tank and the time you put into light, filtration, etc.

thanks for the inspiration

After seeing your tank i made me re think what i am doing, love your work, I found your post while researching my arduino controller for my leds, i have no previous experience and am started to feel that i have my ambition an my ability mixed up yet again. Did you write your own code or borrow someone elses, I have a long road ahead, can get a led to fad, to dim and to blink. Now have to work out the real time, a 24 hr program etc, just wished that i was not a dumb arse carpenter, any help would be great

plantbrain Jose, I happen to have a bunch of left overs from the client's tank, Blue diamonds, Yellow albinos and a Flamingo red.

They are about 3-4".
I have about 10-12 fish left.

They already went through Q and eat any frozen food offered.
Some nice Geophagus would look super in there.

Haha! I'd have to go up to the next model to get the 1/250th sync speed. Not sure why the lesser modes are 1/200th.

As for my speedlight, it's the SB-900, which is their biggest. My SB-600 doesn't go 10mm wide.

Thanks! Those two angels pictures are my big males. They are massive! Each controls one side of the tank, and they always battle it out right in the middle. Pretty fun to watch them

Thanks Nick! For this set and the one before it I simply placed the speedlight on the glass center brace pointing down in the water. I used by SB-900 with the plastic diffusor cap on it, which automatically adjusts the flash zoom to its widest angle of 10mm.

These were shot at 1/200th, ISO 200, and f/13-f/16. 1/200th is my maximum flash sync speed, so I never go faster than 1/200th since after that it greatly reduces the flash output.
