Crazy tank James, what do you plan to keep in there? All those equipment + the tanks must've cost well over 5k...or so.

A monster tank... which I love...

Going for a Planted tank for that monster? welcome aboard!

Next thing would be proper lighting, which you will be needing much of it. Hanging metal halides with some PC supplements would be nice.

Ive got a diy hood with 8 f32 t8's that are 6500k and overdriven 4x each, each bulb has 1 4 bulb ballast, i think that should be good for light, so in other word that is 1024 watts minus loss in heat and etc so take off about 20% so that brings it down too about 800 watts and that is 2.67 watts per gallon

Peace,
Ry

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.
