Here's an update of the tank progress with some photos of the new moonlight in action (at night) and the moss growth.
What's really wonderful about these aquariums is how they look as a whole...inside and out. It's tempting to add additional lighting on the top of the glass, but that would really defeat the purpose of why one buys this aquarium in the first place. I like the design and the way that it conceals components. And I'm diggin the moss....
