Thanks you guys. Im heading to King Eds this weekend (a killer pet store here near Vancouver) and will be getting more plants so I will post more pictures afterwards.

And im not sure of the brand, but it was not originally rimless. I took the liberty of taking the top rim off myself. I wanted to remove the bottom trim aswell, but with that stand it wouldn't have worked out.

I think we have the same tank. We also started at about the same time, this is my first also and I started setting it up 9/3. Glad I found this, I will be interested to share equipment, stocking, results experience with you. I have eheim also, but the 2234 model. My light is a 24" t5ho with the 7500k bulb. I do pressure CO2, but I built the cerges reactor.

Did you have any problems removing the rim?

cheers,
jason
