Man that's the way to do it! I regret skimping every which way on my reef tank back when I built that, so the tank I'm building is a slow, steady process of doing everything right this time!

Keep it up, take your time, and enjoy the process! I think Iwagumi would look fantastic in it, but man this is your canvas, you gotta just make it what you wanna see every day!

Thanks guys. Yeah, this DIY LED lighting is new to me, it's gonna be kick ass!
I'm already over budget on this tank, but at this point...... Who cares! This is my dream build. lol

It was the only large tank available at the time. And even now, the 6 gallons aren't available. I'm sure they've got something up their sleeves, GLA is usually pretty hush about things though.

I want rocks
I want rocks for this tank
I want rocks for this tank but Florida doesn't have much
I don't want to import rocks but I probably have to

that's my haiku.

So I've gotten a little further with this project. After winning this kick ass Cal-Aqua Double Drop Checker from GLA, everything for this build is present.
I still need to mount acrylic to the heat sink, suspend the chords better, and mount my controller.
But since it's been many months in the making, here is a photo:



Planting it has taken me days, I haven't had the time to do it all in one sitting (it's a large footprint). But I'm still hoping to pack more plants in there and shuffle some around a bit, plus adding my fish/shrimp from my other tanks. It's a jungle!

I'm starting to get some algae, which is crazy considering I'm running the lights at 14% right now. Still tweaking things with my fertilizer regiment too, but things are starting to grow. More pics soon.

I seriously considered picking up this tank last year.

The tank and stand actually look better than I expected.

Great set-up man.
