Been running for a couple of days now and seems to be non so far, I think its due to not using concrete as an overlay, I used basically sand and portland, a mix called ultra tex, a friend of mine gave me a bag and I thought I would try it. Anyhow my next step is to build a canopy and try and figure out lighting on a budget. Any ideas? i have some natural sand I am going to use as a substrate.

This isn't quite the thread to discuss your tank setup options, but if you'll start your own thread for that I'm sure you'll get all kinds of feedback.
