    Looks quite nice Anthony, did you actually bring the power for those lights through the support bar?

    How do yo like those lights? I am thinking of getting one for my 12g nano from nanotuners.

    Yesterday after I moved tanks I had a nice layer of surface gunk. I have no overflow, or skimmer on this tank, so I'd imagine a bunch of detritus, aminos, and other organic garbage decided to get together on the surface of my aquarium water.
    I but a small air pump on my tank, and got rid of that problem :)


    Thanks Vlad :) I am thinking of putting a little 5g ADA tank right next to it ... for a freshwater system. haha! :D

    Yeah, I'm thinking of a small system myself. I want to make a zoa garden, no skimmer, low light, low flow. Maybe 5g cube of some sort.

    I will get some closer shots for you in a little bit -just need to finish up some things first :)
    I ended up using an air pump in my tank to have bubbles break the surface of my water; so far so good!

    Edit// dead link now ... I am working on an HD version now :)
     
  16. Cool lighting..... Can you send me pics and stats on the lights? I would like to copy that mod if it's ok with you?

    Hey Chamber,
    This is the link to the light:
    http://www.nanotuners.com/product_info.php?cPath=74&products_id=623&osCsid=qp8vgu91h4vup5187jqgqkm520
    According to that link they may be out of the 12k's at the moment, you would need to check.

    Looking good Anthony. If you find the extra light rail too distracting or bump your head on it we can chop it off cleanly.

    What'd you end up using to secure the rail to the conduit?

    Hey Matt, thanks for all of the help!
    Actually, I know the light rail isn't exactly even with he conduit, but I wanted to leave some extra railing because I thought maybe if I wanted to ad another lamp, I could easily do so. I really want a third lamp :(

    I just used some cable ties I found lying around the house, because they are smooth, and not so abrasive as to scratch the paint on the conduit!
