Looks great, you built the tank yourself?

Also you ended up using the 6 bulb ATI? all six bulbs on?

Do your neons and cardinals all school together? Great looking tank, and I love the rescaping!

Thanks for the comments guys!!

@Green Flash - Yes built the tank myself and i did went for the ATI 6x54w unit. But staggering the lights. only running all 6 tubes for 2 hours a day.

@Redtail - Yes my neons and cardinals school together but weirdly enough only when i take photos. The rest of the time they everywhere in the tank.

FREAKIN AWESOME BUILD!!!

You did a great job on the stand, and the attention to detail is perfect! I can't believe that is a DIY tank!!! FREAKIN AWESOME!!! How much was the glass after polishing and beveling the edges? Did you save much money DIY'n it over buying a prefab tank?

You have done some AWESOME SCAPES TOO!!!! You truly have a eye for Aquascaping!!!

What kind of water temp are you running? Just wondering because your fish look great even though the cards and neons like different water temps.

How did you like the in the tank thermometer? Was it very accurate?

Thanks for the info, and KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!!!!!!!!

@BoxxerBoyDrew - Thanks man. I saved more than half the price i would have paid for a tank like this to be built. I am running at 26-28 deg Celcius, but with the summer now i leave my inline heater off as the room temp is like a heater. The in tank thermometer is not on the dot accurate but it is very good at giving me an indication.
