Before I removed the top glass I wanted to make sure I had a lighting arrangement that I could implement at least for a while. I went to Lowes and grabbed a stick of PVC, a couple of elbows, and a cap.
Here is what I came up with. This'll work just fine.
I mounted It to the original Fluval base using conduit straps and screws.
So, I siphoned down, and removed the top with a razor blade. Anyone wanna guess what that is on the glass?
Ouch! It's OK, I'm a paramedic... HAHA.
Anyway, back to it, and this is the result.
And a video for the shimmer effect that makes a reef tank IMO.
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for watching!
