As tempting as that may be, I don't think I could be so cruel to a stranger. LOL.

Nice work on the tank. Great find....
If there were any other place to put it, I probably would. Sadly, this was pretty much the only option. Between having duct tape face up on the table near by for a few weeks, and creating a bit of a baffle, I think I've solved my problem. No soggy light strips or cats in a few weeks.

Thanks! It was my first time dismantling and resealing a tank. Whoever put it together last time, didn't bother to square it up. There were several 1/4" gaps between pieces of glass. Pretty impressive it held water as long as it did.

Thanks! It's grown in quite a bit the last week or two. I'll try and get a few new shots of it tonight before I trim it up and do a water change.
