18x6x6 Tank
Aquaclear 20
24" 10K 24W T5HO daylight bulb (i know its overkill)
Flourite mixed in with Fluval stratum
No stock yet, planning on 6 Boraras brigittae and 2 Otto's

Any criticism (Good or Bad) will be greatly appreciated.

NEVER. EVER leave your 4 year old nephew near your tank with sand paper. He will try and "pet the glass" with it and scratch it up.

I have the 900 lumen Beamswork over my 18" long. Its very bright. Brighter than my fugeray. The uneven moonlights are annoying though.

Are you sure that 6 pencil fish will be OK in such a small tank?

How do you like the flow of the Aqua 20 for your tank? Specifically, do you think the flow is too strong?

My rule of thumb doesn't depend on the gallonage of the tank, but on how big the actual tank is

Same here, but I still don't know if they're ok in a smaller tank. I don't actually know, I'm just asking what kind of research did you do on them?

Of course, I did research on them a few weeks back before I thought of the rasboras, I always do 1-2 weeks of research on everything I get
