API test kit. Pick them up, they're worth the $7.

I'm enjoying following this tank. I like the driftwood. So sorry about your sandpaper adventure! I'm interested to see what light you end up using.

From what I noticed.... the black silicone edges & the corner seams make this tank worth the extra money to me.

However, the store I saw these at didn't have the 3G Long.
  • How much does the 3G DB Long tank.... normally SELL for?
Also you couldn't find a BLACK prefilter? That Yellow AC open cell sponge ruins the esthetics of the tank.
not to derail this thread but does that LFS have a website?! that sounds like a pretty sweet deal!

Out of curiosity, what light are you using? Sorry if I missed it earlier in your thread. I want to pick up one of these and place it on a small ledge we have in between the living room and kitchen

Are you injecting CO2 since you have so much light?

Hey everybody! Long time no update, got some bba so I rescaped the tank and plucked all the bba covered leaves off and did a 10 sec hot water dip for all the plants. I will also start spot dosing flourish and flourish excel tomorrow instead the fluval co2 which is now on the 2.5 pictures tomorrow!
