Wow! That is a lot going on in a 40g tank - it is very nice! Do you have any things that you would have done different, things that worked really well and you would recommend to others, and/or specific lessons learned?

I'm only a year and half deep into this tank and I just started getting into the hobby. I dont think I'm allowed to consider myself successful yet, that being said, I have had very few issues with any of the decisions I went with. I would probably do it the exact same way again. Dont have a ton of room to play with so shooting for the world's most intricate nano lol
