idleivey: I think you'll really enjoy the Current LED fixture. If you don't want to suspend it over your tank (I think you should for aesthetic reasons and to preserve the rimless look), you can dim the light with the included remote control. Way fancier than the Marineland Double Bright I've got on my 12gal. Would have purchased the Current fixture if it had been on the market in 2011. Probably going to upgrade soon.
I'm sure you'll have no shortage of livestock options. The Wet Spot is nearby, right? I'm super-jealous!
Cyanider: That's great news!
Hope both of you start tank journals so we may follow along with your progress.
