That is looking really great!! couple of questions:
what's the color temp of your bulbs?
what's the "computer cooler"?
how old is the tank?

I love the red tint of the tank, makes the ram look AWESOME.

Hi,
Gro Lux color temp: 3400K
Computer cooler bought in a computer parts supply store. It's a 12 volts cooler and I use it with a 9 volts transformer for less noise in the ambient. I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the temperature now ( summer ) is 102 F ( 39 C).
The cooler keeps my aqua water temp at 82,4 F ( 28 C).
Tank running for 5 months.

Thank you.

Best regards

Dunga
