^ I have that stand, they make a glossy glass top. There is also a middle support beam.

Anyways, how the HC Cuba carpet going, any close up pictures?

If you start making the pipes, I'll buy a pair for sure.

made a little holder for my dosing bottles, finally got the t5's hung, much better light spread. Growth has been ok, though i did a dose of algae fix which wasnt a good idea, seemed to have melted some of the h.c and h.m so i trimmed those down and hoping it recovers.

Your update looks great! What t5 fixture is that? Are you using Giessman bulbs?

BTW, when you use to use the Besta as a stand, did you drill any holes to run wires or equipment through the cabinet?

zoomed fixture, 1 geismann midday, and azoo flora bulb. and yes, i used a holesaw to make a hole in the side for the lily pipes, then another hole in the rear for power. ikea actually sells a 2" holesaw with grommets by the office desks.

Cool thank you for the info... I was worried that cutting holes would reduce the structural integrity or something.

I added a bristlenose pleco a few weeks ago which tore up a lot of the h.c, other than that things are growing very well, just playing with different stem plants in the background at the moment, im happy with the back right, myrio was moved the far left after this photo which looks much better, need to find a plant for the back middle.

I'm always overlooking tank journals that are very beautiful and here's another one. Very nice tank and nice choice on plants. I think some L. pantanal would look good in the back.

Your water and glass are so very clean, what do you use to scrap algae off the corners? I'm afraid the thin layer of silicone might tear if I scrub too close.

Absolutely beautiful! The stauro was a great choice (just have to keep it low) and the size of the rocks is perfect. Only thing I'm not 100% sure about is the hc, I'd consider a line of pogos instead.

This is so killer. Looks like you added Toms/Fluval surface skimmer? I love those things.
