    Hi everyone I’m upgrading my 20g long to the 60 cube.. [​IMG]

    Here’s the stand I build for it last month[​IMG]

    Just received the ai hydra 26hd for the setup might also get the aquatic life fixture to add t5s with it [​IMG]

    Right now I’m just waiting on my sump from 302aquatics so I can do the plumbing on the tank.. going red pvc on this one

    Sorry it took so long but here’s a few I snapped for ya. Haven’t really been doing much to it as we are anticipating another move within the month. But when we do I’ll be building a new stand and sump for it

    I love it, when I begin to upgrade I may debate getting the hydra or doubling up the primes. But I run it at 45% max so I have some room to build it up. Great starter light that got me into led's from my t5's

    Hey guys sorry haven’t posted a update but got the tank running couple weeks ago
    [​IMG]

    Don’t mind the sloppy gluing.. was a pain in the rear to plumb lol

    [​IMG]

    Transferred from the 20g long after a few days to get the water to temp.. everything went well and everything survived

    [​IMG]

    Ended up picking a flurry clown at colchester pet that Jen had ordered for me.. I was nervous at first cause of my phantom but after a couple days they are friends.. also picked up a tomini tang from Ari21 last weekend so I’m all done for livestock but most likely gonna get a captive bred mandarin..
