  1. heya guys,

    i've been pretty busy lately between school, selling my previous setup and setting this up in elk grove. i was pretty sad to see the 70 gallon go but with every closed door another one opens which happens to be this 25 gallon eco cube which is really the current solana.

    25 gallon cube 18x18x18
    espresso flavored standard mfg stand
    current sundial fixture 150w MH with 64w actinic, stock bulb has been replaced by radium 20k
    some substrate has been transferred from previous setup. (a mixture of miracle mud and aragonite)
    vortech mp20 for water flow

    That is some beautiful tank !!
    I like the look of hanging lights on a bracket, I just finished one for a PFO pendant today but did not take any images of it.
    Is the bracket square? I want to try using a conduit bender for square tubular steel.

    Tank looks amazing Sam, guess that is an upside to downsizing
