Don't remind me :angry: I ordered the tank on January 7th. I just now canceled my original order and got one shipped from Aqua Forest in the same day. It'll be here Thursday!

You should check out greenleafaquariums.com same as ADA not as pricey, What is your light of choice there?

Oooh they have some really nice dimensions! I'll have to keep them in mind if I decide to get a larger tank later.

The light is an Aqua Medic Spacelight EX, it's 150 watts with a 20k bulb.

That's going to look amazing! Did you make the support for the light and run the cord through the conduit yourself?

Light setup is clean looking, Ive been thinking about hiding the wire the same way, but havent done enough R&D to do it yet. Did you take apart the light to run the power cord?

Yup. Luckily it wasn't a very complicated setup inside the pendant. It's all painted and ready to go, I'm just letting it dry extra long because it's rainy and cold here today. Hopefully I'll have pics up by this evening.

Looks so sweet, can't wait for this. Which tank did you order? Maybe I missed it somewhere in your thread...
