what light fixture are you using?

My dad and I actually welded it together. It's old scrap metal from a lawn table and a couple of light switch housing units. The unit with the actual switch is behind the bulbs and the other holds the two bulbs together. All the wiring runs through the fixture, i'll post pics tomo. :)

I was going for a pirate-esque kind of look, but the only concern I'll have is that it'll trapping alot of excess wastes. I really want to buy a blenny too, so hopefully it'll dig it.

well its different and thats what I like about it. I would be worried about it catching addition waste as well. It would be cool if there was a way to put a couple holes in the bottle to allow some flow.

I may just put a small piece of rock underneath the brim to lift it so the sand is exposed,

I'm running a coarse filter pad, fine filter pad, carbon filter pad and some small pieces of LR. After the carbon pad I am thinking of using Chemi-pure elite instead. I'll also be replacing the fine filter pad with poly-filter! Are you keeping Boost bulbs?

Can you provide details on that fixture, if you don't mind of course. It looks nice. I've been having a heck of a time trying to find something nicer looking then my clamp on desk lamps for my Par38 bulbs.

 

Edit: Nevermind, saw the details posted above. Very nice!

The fixture is really simple, the can of spray paint I used really made it nice. I'll see if I can make a google sketch up of everything.

Your tank is really awesome, but i think you should replace that beer bottle with something a little nicer. Dunno what.. but ima be honest.. that beer bottle aint doing nothing for that ADA.
