Went ahead and made a wall mount for the ray 2, i have to say having the par data from finnex really helps in knowing where to put the fixture.



also made a small 'pot' for plants as a background to the tank.. still waiting for the silicone to dry, but im hoping this should give a better sense of depth to the tank

That is a really cool idea and a very nice tank. I can't wait to see it when the plants in the pot and tank are completely filled in.

To make that square hole, do you need to drill a hole first with other drill or can you just poke a hole with the dremmel and do the cut?

i just used the drill part on the dremel bit, they sell that as a kit for your dremel, its a great tool, i use it a lot. you can also adjust the depth on it.

I think that is one of the best backgrounds I have ever seen. Adds an awesome touch and gives it that paludarium feel. SO much better than a piece of colored board and lights That a lot of us use...

Could you elaborate a bit on this background. Are these planted behind the Tank itself or ?

Plants were put in a custom 'pot' behind the tank. This was nice for a while but the plants I chose decided to send roots all over the place, which became unsightly and trimming the plants that had died turned into a pain, so I kinda gave up and stuck some fake plants in the pot with soil, so its maintenance free.



Ill have to start a new journal for my other tank i just set up, quick teaser
