Looks great! You have managed to add some depth to this long tank which is great!
I have this tank too, and I sometimes find it looks best when peered in from the side with all the added depth.

You've changed the light. Do you have a preference for this over the stock?

Thanks!

I really love the fluval specs i have 4 of them. The stock light work enough, but it take really long time for the plants to grow and some plants ended up dying. After changing the light the plant grow really improved. I think for the tank if you want better result, changing the light is a most, also for the colors, to catch the eyes better!
