My new 90 gallon set up....

Ok well since forddna (Amanda) stole my 120 I had to get another tank SO I got a 90 gallon and VERY quickly built a stand, still need to do the canopy. This stand is NOTHING like the others I made but for 2 hours it isnt so bad!!!

I have Florite substrate
A-H Supply 4x55 watt PC retro fit kit with 2 x 6700 and 2 x 7800 bulbs
2 x XP3 Rena Canisters

Bunch of plants, to which Im not to sure the names, Ive been slacking on learning the names of plants and fishies!!

I also have 34 fishies currently in the tank...

Still NEED to seal the thing!!

Blah blah blah...on wif the pictures!! Now my camera is starting to take a poo on me and its taking some horribe pics but at least ya can get the general idea....Pic time...

Good start, but what is that crusty stuff on both your canisters? Salt?

Sure is a great setup you have there....so what was the time frame on the stand? It really is a good looking tank.

Nice batch of Brilliant Rasboras. I had them in my 40G before I moved. I loved how they schooled. I kept them with my RCS. I would guess that they ate some of the babies but I still had plenty of population growth.
