Joe's disorganized 65 gal. 56K warning!
I never knew that starting a planted tank would be this hard or require so much learning. I bought a 65 gal. tank, (36"X24"X18") and immdediately realized I didn't have a clue as to how to make a stand or canopy. It took a lot of mistakes and learning to make the canopy and stand. You can tell that it is my first time; warped canopy top, cracks and uneven stand doors, etc. But I loved it, it was really fun! Too bad my wife wasn't THAT impressed. (Deep down, I think she was, but she was probably afraid to show it, lest it lead to more purchasing of tools and such, haha)
1. You can see the light leaking out from the top of the canopy due to the warp...
2. 2 AHSupply 96W lights, along w/ 2 case fans installed. I don't know how you guys do it, my wiring is so messy!
3. Light comparison, top is 10,000K and bottom is 6,400K
4. The stand. Notice the uneven installation of the doors (and the visible cracks in top and bottom of doors)
5. The Whole set up.
