The 4 bulb t8 fixture you posted is gonna be a ton of light. You could probably get away with a 2 bulb shoplight. Just get 6500k bulbs.

I think someone high up in the seattle camp had a lot of money on the pats to win. 3 downs,2 timeouts, 30 seconds,and the leagues best running back from the half yard mark should be an easy win.

It's my understanding that TopFin tanks are made by Aqueon for Petsmart. I have a couple 75's that have held up perfectly. I'm most likely going to get a couple more.

Didn't realize it's been so long since I updated this. The tank is chugging along great. Lost a couple rams to old age, added a Bristlenose. Plants are growing at a steady rate.
