I've definitly come to terms that the substrate will get messy. But I assume as long as I recap with cycled sand, then I should be ok. I will take care of it this weekend, and once I am done, I will...

LEDs for my 20 gal long?

So I've been doing some reading and I feel torn on which way to go with my lights on the 20 gallon long.

Tank stand idea

I have a stand that fits a 20 gallon high perfectly. However I am getting a 20 gallon long and was wondering if I placed some plywood on top of the stand, the size of the 20 long, would this be ok?

No problem with the rams. Just lost a couple when trying to treat for Ich. It was more due to the hospital tank being too small, I have since upgraded to a 29 gallon.
