It would be nice, but can't. My work gives me a little leeway with side projects, but not going to push it.

Biggest holdup for me was how to display the LCD panel. Didn't find much for a 20x4, so ended up making my own. I should have a pic soon.

After googling images, it does look like subwassertang. Guess that's why I couldn't find it on any algae-identifying pages.

Marineland Ensemble 60-gallon stand not supporting in front

I ended up keeping the tank. But in looking for a new stand. Honestly I love the tank. Black silicone and its frontal dimension look appealing to me.

Marineland Ensemble 60-gallon stand not supporting in front

I'm kinda leaning 75gal. It's got the dimensions I want.

Little hesitant due to the weight, but I looked into this with the 60 and felt it was ok. What's 15 more gallons right? (And a bit more...

Would you worry about this chip in my corner?

I would, except I bought the last one and have to ask a friend to take it for me since it doesn't fit in my car.

So if I return it, I'll need to find something else.
