It looks good so far and I like the bow front tank and matching stand.

The substrate looks a little too deep. Does it have black silicone in the corners or some type of molding, either way I like the look almost like it's framed, nice!

Fish candidate: white cloud minnows. Very hardy, and pretty fish.


Are you worried some of the kids might try to poison the tank somehow? Cynical, I know, but as a teacher I'm sure you'll agree that some kids are capable of this kind of thing.

Haha, that's what I was fixing to say. I've tried to use a Double Bright on a 30 gallon and it didn't really work out. The only time that I did grow some good plants with the Double Bright was when I had it on the 10 gallon I used to have (It grew Moderate light plants).
