Have you considered building an enclosure to house your light so you dont get as much light spill into the room? I guess this only matters if the spill bothers you are not.

Just a noob

Anyone else freaked out that bear hasn't moved? Someone should poke him to make sure he's ok

Loving the suspension idea. Can't get my wife on board with suspending our bedroom tank with fishing line. Something about clothes flying and knocking it into the water or something like that...

Lol that bear guards the electric cord from being yanked by our daughter.

The pleco also didn't move!

Just for people thinking about copying this, observe the glass top on the tank, this will prevent all kinds of shiznitz falling into the tank, when reaching for stuff on the shelves.

Hi. I'm back.

I also have the glass top to keep the floor from getting filter splash on it. I like to run the outtake hose pretty high to get more oxygen transfer on the waters surface because I run a lot of c02. Also I don't have a pleco unless there is like a pleco ghost in the picture I can't see.
