Completely unrelated to the tank, but I noticed Goodlettesville as your location. We go by there a couple of times a year and I have to recommend the restaurant "Chef's Market." The food is fabulous.

Best of luck with setting thing back up! I'm sure it will be even more beautiful than before!

Good start. You have your work cut out for you. That last scape was AMAZING.

Cob---probably don't eat them, but they will scavenge any remaining....meat....The Circle of Life, type of thing, I guess!

Obakemono--Yes, the lights are now a good 2.5 feet off the tank now. I have taken a measurement yet, but this is lower light. I will be buying new fixtures with German reflectors relatively soon. Two light pendants of 8x54watt T5 HO's, for a total of 16 bulbs. That will help, but once I get plants on the Manzy, it will certainly dim things down below the Manzy. I have mostly anubia species, crypts, and buce's in there, so they will appreciate the lower light conditions. The stems are in unobstructed lighting areas. There is still some re-arranging that I'm sure will happen, but I am hoping for a slower growing set up.

Drema--Thank you! I'll take every ounce of luck that I can get! My CO2 closed loop system is completely fried, so I have to get another one soon! Just happened tonight, too! Darn thing started leaking water after I waterproofed it yesterday, and then stopped. I hope that I don't lose too many plants.....

Chef's is sweet! The wife and I usually go there for lunch once or twice per month. And take home a piece of cake for dessert to split later on!

Antbug! Thanks bro! Most of the fun is in the journey rather than the destination, yes?

Absolutely. It wouldn't be a hobby if you just set it up and it was done.

I remember when I first saw your journal and I though, bad shape for a planted tank. It's hard enough to pull off a good looking tank with one viewing side and you pulled off a stunning 360 degree tank. Thumbs up. Looking forward to this one.

Thanks, Anthony!! Btw--did Tom ever explain why the green lights are important to use in your fixture? For the life of me, I've been scratching my head over that one. Green plants reflect green light, which is why they are green. Is there a chance that yellow light wavelengths from the green bulb are what you are trying to gain? Let me know, when you can! I would like to try some of these types of bulbs...the red and purple bulbs are "defines" for me....not so sure of the green bulbs though.

Hi Correna!

I started a new Journal thread for the new tank set up after I tore it down. Here's a link:
