I agree with vance71975! Where in TX are you rick4him? Would you mind telling me how much it cost to have the ADA stand made? What about the metal piece that you suspend the light from? How does it attach to the stand and how much did it cost? I'm thinking of getting a custom stand made if/when I move up to a bigger tank one day.

How does the arm attach to the stand and how much does it cost? Since your stand is custom made by a friend, were there any problems using that metal rm? Is it sturdy?

hey man, the shots from the update on the 21st look great! Try and use the same camera settings and angles cause it really showed the tank a lot better than your previous pics. It really looks great!

Hey thanks man - that setting was actually some setting on my camera that said vivid - I actually didn't like it becuase it made it look "darker" then it actually was. Do you think it looks better doing it that way?

I did like the shot of that white stuff on my hair grass - that camera focused amazingly on the grass - did you see that.


As far as the stand for the light - that light stand is the Grand Solar one light stand - it was around 200 bucks. As far as having any issues with it fitting on my stand - no - all it really is is two metal arms that you attach to your stand with brackets - no biggy. then the poles just go into the brackets, and that arm just goes across the two poles and you hang the light on it.

IF you to ADG's webpage you can see the stand - I like it.

(many people like to build their own light stands - i personally don't like dyi projects, so it was easier for me to just buy the light stand from adg.

Yes, the darker pic was by far much crisper and less white. It had a lot more contrast, and for once your tank didn't look washed out. It's 100% nicer.

I never knew that light stand even existed from ADA. I don't see it on ADG's website. They seem to only have the Solar I, and not the Grand Solar I.

Aqua Forest Aquarium has it on their site though. Your arm looks really nice, and I much prefer the looks and convenience of it over having to install it in the ceiling and running wires down.

Yah - if you email Jeff he has it - it just isn't on the website.

Yah it is MUCH easier then installing it from above. And believe it or not I actually like the look better. I think it gives it a nice, clean look.
