+1

I like the overall design, but the top half of the tank looks too empty IMO.

Did you ask for anything in particular or do you just buy a box and hope for the best?

Late to the party, but....

The only reason to have a RO/DI for a planted aquarium is if you're going to mix RODI water with dry ferts to make your own solutions. Otherwise, RODI water isn't...

I'm not sure if GAC is appropriate for a planted aquarium. Carbon removes matter that will eventually become nitrate, but it also absorbs a lot of other things. It can be beneficial if used properly;...

Haven't seen a firm relaese date, but from some previous correspondence I think it may be out in either Feb or March.

Not sure if it's me, but the plants look like they're in two straight lines which makes things look artificial. Maybe break things up a bit to add depth? This will probably be done when you add the...

I'd be hand-sanding it and the bark seems to come off with a little scraping from my finger-nail so I can't imagine this being too big of a job with some sandpaper. Not looking for perfection, I just...

Any solid release date or pricing info as of yet? Since this fixture is arranged as one row of lights, will 2 fixtures be needed for an "even spread" on a 75g (18" front to back)?

Why not?

sandpaper to remove manzanita bark?
