It is also good to know the Geisemann bulbs fit the fixture. I thought the bulbs might be proprietary.
Its about 6 inches off the tank, when i first started things it was maybe 10 inches off the tank till things settled in, then i increased the lighting a bit.

heres some photos from last week

Thanks for the reply

Wow! I am really excited now, I was bummed thinking I would have to deal with the fixture sitting on the top of the tank. Going to suspend it for sure

Love your tank!

Beautiful. Take pride mate.
Pardon my ignorance if you already have mentioned this but what kind of dosing bottles are they?

I have the same question. I love the surface skimmer, but the gigantic black tubing just looks awful in smaller tanks...

Is it custom made or can you buy the clear one somewhere?

Awesome, thanks!

Fantastic tank layouts, btw! I really love the green peaks and I think the new layout will look very nice with everything grown in!

Beautiful as ever. Just so clean!

BTW, do you get algae in the mini fiss? I'm getting this green fuzzy stuff in mine. Also, is that giant hairgrass in the back?

Great progress! I like the wood, have you ever thought of doing a pure stone scape? The selection of wood over here is almost non-existance, sometimes I wonder if they just grab a bunch of branches and slap a price tag on them.

The competition is fierce in the 60P club! Everyone is starting on a new scape and it just raise the bar a bit higher. I'm starting to feel a little inadequate about my new tank...
