What brand tank and lighting?

Not sure why it's taking so long for rimless to become commonplace in the US.

tank brand...clearseal 18X10X10"
lighting..... it was an old single 18watt Power Compact light unit ! the bulb was old and needed replacing, so i took the light unit apart! sprayed it black and added 3 led strips! 1x Interpet Blue Moonlight LED Strip,2x pro white daylight interpet led strips
really pleased with the lighting! my pictures dont do the light justice!
also my diy filter is working great !
thanks for your questions!

i agree, take the sword back and get a pair of puffers. also make sure all plants are true aquatic. idk what that bigger plant with reddish leaves is in the left background...

reefs are always exciting =)
i think dwarf puffers are cool.
that plant i was talking about doesnt look too aquatic, but keep an eye on it and see how it does.
