I recognize it from a series of books, "The Wheel of Time" by Robert Jordan, and finished by Brandon Sanderson The series is 13 or 14 books long (can't remember which) and BS finished the last 3 or 4 which ever it is... I could go count the books, have em in a box in the closet

Haahah cool!

I plan to think of this tank as a glimpse into what the edge of the world might look like.

Nothing like new equipment to get us hot and bothered. Must be xmas at your house. Tank is looking good but it can't be the world end I was at the lps and they still have tanks there so you may be able to get couple more world ends.

Much appreciated! I've been told it's a little too much light but I guess we'll see.

Speaking of Christmas coming earlier today, got a call this morning that my CO2 was full which was AMZING timing because I received this wonderful package this afternoon:


Guess who gets to do some planting tonight!

i can speak from experience. 4 bulbs on a 20 long is gonna cook! lol i had the exact same setup on my 29, so i even had a few inches on you in height. I rented a par meter and i was well over 180 from the substrate. Had to raise it 10" above the water line to get it closer to 80 haha

Looks awesome though, cant wait to see it all planted and grown in.

Very good info! Did you end up keeping the 4 bulbs and raising the light? I like the freedom of 4 different bulbs/spectrums rather than just two.
