Is that a modified Eclipse tank? I almost got one of those to use; it was missing the light hood but I wouldn't have used it anyways. Nice growth on the plants! Are those incandescent lights? They look very futuristic

My friend gave 2 of those acrylic tanks to me and they not came with hood. Those lamps I got them from walmart about $7-8 with 13W CF soft light (they look too yellow), I'll change them to 13W CF daylight soon.
