The scary thing is that I have way more tanks than I'll ever be able to document here.

At least I get to showcase some interesting goodies for forum members so they don't have to spend a bunch of scratch trying them out. That's the fun part.

I'm scared to ask how many you actually do have.

Nice driftwood pieces and the background looks neatly done from here.

Eheim 2211 arrived today (along with a bunch of dog treats - so you can imagine what kept me from messing with tanks for a while). Thinking it'll work out really well for the tank with just shrimp.

Have more driftwood arriving Tuesday. Hope to finalize some sort of scape at that point.

Really cool tank!!!

when I am able to do a shrimp tank I might just go with one of these beauties! Price can't be beat! Could easily make a lid if needed!

One of our fellow club members did a review on the Satellite LED+, have you seen it?

Part One:
http://www.guitarfish.org/2013/05/20...-review-part-1

and Part two:
http://www.guitarfish.org/?s=Satellite+LED

I actually bought three of these the past few months, the last one going on a 75g. Now, all my plants are low light. They are doing fine on 20g longs on H mode. I started the 75 gallon on full spectrum, but it's too soon to tell if it's going to work.

Just thought I'd share in case you hadn't read his reviews.....

Looking forward to seeing this one progress! The tank itself is pretty sweet.

I have a few of the fixtures. One is in use on my 20Ls journal.

Have another piece that could work in this tank:





Not quite sure yet. Still hoping to find a nice stump of some sort.

That's a nice piece. I can picture shrimp all over it.

Added a bunch more driftwood to my 12gal thread, as I'm in the process of re-scaping it as I build this tank up.

Try looking for Redmoor Root Wood, i think it closely resembles a stump if you position it correctly.

Yep, it's a common variety in pet shops in this neck of the woods. Not interested in that light color, though, Focused more on Malaysian driftwood or Manzanita stumps. I'll eventually find something, I'm sure.

Now that I'm in a new city, I'm finally setting this tank up.

Once I settle on a light fixture, that is...
