Thanks for all the kind words.
Johnson18 were you wanting more pics of the stand itself? My hubby is a DIYer and kind of adapted this stand from some other DIY plans he read. I have some other pics but they look about the same. What were you wanting to see? I will be taking more later this week when I get it planted so I can try to get some different angles if that's what you are wanting.
Icegoalie32, I've read that thread and wasn't sure how to get my hands on one of those PAR readers. Did you use one or make an educated guess from what the article told you?
jake10, I definitely want shrimp! I hadn't thought about putting them in this tank though. Something to think about!
