Yes, I am planning to stain it when we trim it out. We have a nasty flu virus in the house at the moment so building my tank has been put on hold a few days. Just continuing to research, make my lists, check them twice and salivate over the tanks on this forum.

The tank came with a Whisper 60 (all media and intake tube removed) and an 18" OceanSun 10,000K. I think it may have been used as a terrarium since there were shavings of some kind in it when we got it. I have checked for leaked and there were none.

Does anyone use a Whisper? I realize it isn't ideal and will eventually upgrade to a canister like I had before. I rather like the waterfall noise though. Still needs a thorough cleaning but that will have to wait until at least tomorrow. Hoping to get some substrate in on Saturday and start collecting plants!
