Nice tank placement! I'm a big fan of sunlight to light tanks if possible.

I just finished my third attempt at a planted tank. They get better with each go around but I don't want to post pics until everything really grows in.

Nice tank. Are those the very inexpensive shop lights I am also using? Yours are mounted much more tastefully than mine.

Thanks. Yep, those are just the cheapo shop lights from Lowes/Depot with 23watt CFLs in them.

Seriously beautiful tank.

I read through your journal. You have a lot of thoughtful work in that tank.

Nice job. How do you like your cholla wood? I've heard that it breaks down after a while. Is that true?

It is a bit soft but I don't move it to often for the fact that it does break down. I've had it for months now and it at least is still. Holding up. Overall I like the look. Good for my shrimp too
