It's filling in very nicely. I need about 2-3 more months until the HC fills in and then I'll post some great pics. I have so much co2 going in here that nothing survives. This is no longer a shrimp tank since I got really into plants (almost all the ebitens were sold off or put into my main shrimp tank to mix with everything else).

Pics will come in probably 2 months. It's really starting to look awesome.

I usually just fill the water in my shrimp tanks instead of dripping it. It would take too long and I would most likely ditch the shrimp hobby...

I did almost the exact same setup for hanging my buildmyled.com fixture over my 12 long supreme red/ oebt tank.
Looks great.

I actually changed my mind on this setup and will report with pics one of these days. A guy has been begging me to sell him some of my Ebiten PRL so I sold every single one except 1 female which I will breed with one of my new Crystal Whites. With that said, the tank in this thread is empty and it's just getting a ton of light, co2 and ferts. Plants and mosses are starting to take off now so I'm waiting for the tank to flourish before posting pics again. Not sure why I changed my mind but for some reason I got the "plant" bug again. I do have a primary shrimp tank already so there was no need for two.

Then again...I might change my mind sooner or later and drop some shrimp in there. Oh yeah...the plant tank gets the most attention from everyone that I bring to my apartment so it's not a bad thing.

I do 2 gallons each week which equals about 11%. The tank is roughly 17 gallons.

I really like it bright and had no issues except that I never kept it on for more than 4 hours. Now that winter is here I am home more frequently so I'd like to enjoy the tank more. Luckily the hangers helped a ton.

hedge_fund I won a bet with a friend of mine and she came over to cook me dinner so i had some spare time to work on a little project that I've been putting off. The light was so bright that I could only keep it on for 4 hours. I decided to build a little hanging system which has the light suspended about 7 inches from the water. I may no longer need floating plants but we'll see what happens in a few days.

Total cost was less than 15 bucks if anybody is interested. Items that were picked up at Home Depot as I randomly walked down every single isle looking for materials.

2 L-shaped shelf support brackets (they had multiple colors)
2 mirror wires (used to suspend mirrors)
1 packed of the little metal pieces that you clamp together (not sure of name)
1 packet of screws for sheet rock (the l-shaped brackets do come with screws).

Not the greatest looking thing but it will do. I was planning on buying a hanger that's already made but I have no room behind the tank. One more thing...the L-shaped brackets come in different lengths and the ones that I purchased were 10 inches.

Thanks. I'll have to see if I can track those down.
