Just a standard suspension wiring kit that you would use for mounting to a ceiling. You just don't need all the fancy brackets and such, just bolt it through.

Most fixture will come with a specific kit, but they all work. They are about 20 bucks or so.

Ah, thanks. They look very nice- like something that would come with a Tek fixture.

Nice set up. As a side note, a friend of mine needs aluminum tubing for a non aquarium project. I sent him this link and it was perfect for him. Funny how that works.

^Am I the only one that went and checked the Hydor after reading this article? Great write up. Very professional and the pictures are fantastic. I always wondered what was going on it there.

Just posted a few images of my planted aquarium that was featured in TFH's "Adventures in Aquascaping." It was a great experience to write a 4 part series for a magazine, but it sure was challenging to come up with some interesting material every month!

Oh, I couldn't think of a name, anyone have a good one?

Check out the pics here...

I keep thinking "Peaceful" when I look at Nameless. How long have you been writing articles? I hope you are getting paid for your wonderful work.
