First off I'll lay down a couple of shots from inside the tank:

Only some rubble in there right now, I plan to add some larger peices of Lr when I add more coral.

Yuma that looks good

And here is my addition. Today I got bored and made up a base and hood. I'm in the process of putting some poly urathain on right now. Abou to order a 18 watt PC to put in it.

no updated shots today, but my hood and base are now done and I'm just waiting for the light retro to come, should be here by friday. I'm going to be adding alittle more LR and then some zoo frags, when they get here, and I'm planning on pulling some stuff out of the 20.

PS...**cough** 04's got this in th bag**cough**

The yuma is about the size of a quarter, I'm using him as a test dummy for the tanks stability, but it looks good right now so I'm pretty confident about the tnaks health.

I plan to try a few montis and of corse alot of little frags out of my 20.

I finished my hood and base and put the 10 watt Pc in it till I get my 18 watt retro on friday.

Not as true, but shows the simi open back, to allow for better cooling

the current PS is only 10 watts, my 18 watt retro from Chris from nanocustoms will be here friday. I plan on adding a good bit of LR, I hav ea peice in my 20L that I'm tempted to snag, tho it really will leave a void in the 20.

I just went with an 18watt Coralife fixture, considering i'm "mentally challenged" when it comes to putting together lighting fixtures.

ha ha yea, I wanted to have a tank that looked pretty from the outside, not just with the stuff in it. So I made the hood and base. How are the moon lights on the coralife fixture?

O it was the other fixture with that, the one they were dong the group buy on. I like my moon lights on my 20L, but the thing is i have them on a timer becuase I dont think that its healthy for a tank to have light, even just a few LED's on all the time. I got some LED's from auto zone and then got a transformer for em, $15 total.

Your hood looks pretty nice, especially because you banged it together in an hour :lol: ! Id say I worked on my hood for at least three, if not four hours!! Also, what retro are you using?

Yea I'v got a nasty habit of not wanting to spend alot of time on things, and its pretty enough for me so I'm happy. If I had spent more time, like I usualy do on wood working projects, I would have made it an all wood construction and either dove tailed it or used wooden pegs, but when the tank is sitting there lookin ugly the rush is on. ha ha
I got the 18 watt Pc retro theat they sell on nanocustoms.com. Should be here friday so I'm pretty happy about that.
