Fingers crossed mine will come today. It would be cool if they came in the same day, the dual Fs. I'm building a stand for mine with the dimensions specifically so that like you, if I want, I can upgrade to a 60-F.
This will be so good! Too bad the tank's taking so long.

Yeah, the F's are seriously the best tanks! I'm dying to get this set up.. but due to shipment complications my tank was just shipped today! It'll be another week before I have the tank, oh well..

While I wait, here's a quick Windows phone picture of the Seiryu stones.

How many pounds of seiryu is that? That should seriously be your scape. It's absolutely beautiful. I vote for this awesome (albeit accidental) scape!

Out of curiosity, where did you get your stones? Locally or online? I've been trying to find a decent place online to get them, cause last time I got them online they weren't really the best stones.

Haha it's not accidental I scaped it intentionally. I like it too, I might end up going with it. It's about 15lbs of stone.

I got them from a local member, Flowerfishs. Search for him int the SnS, he has a ton of great Seiryu packages at good prices, and he's great to deal with.

Awesome, thanks! I'd love to be able to choose what rocks I get, rather than doing what I did last time and buying X lbs of rocks, not knowing what I'd get!

Also, I'm with CPDZeke, I like the setup you had in the photo!

Yeah I totally agree, last time I just ordered by pounds and it's so much better to see what you're gonna get. The stones are much higher quality this time around.
We'll see what it looks like in the tank!

I sold it to a local member along with the 45-f.

Mine still hasn't come.
Hopefully it'll come today! How much light do you think that Solar II puts out compared to the cree fixture?

The solar II puts out more light, but it's diffused over a larger area. It's hard to tell when it's not over water though.

I just read that there was a strike at the docks, so AFA shipments might not go out for a while.
I'll call them tomorrow. Sorry to threadjack!

Oh that sucks.
Powder type AS arrived today, now all that's left is the tank and plants. So excited!
