Thanks, I tried to go with the rule of 1/3rds.

As for bracing the plastic, you could always clamp a piece of plywood to it.



Actually, I'm not such a big fan of glo-fish. However, I set the tank up for Katherine and she has free reign on what fish goes in it. This is also the reason for so many fancy goldfish. I'm not a fan of those either.

I've considering adding some moss on the driftwood but, from what I understand, it's very invasive and once you have moss, you always have moss. There are some other options though.
I definitely would not add moss. Also Katherine has great taste ;)

I know you can buy stock replacement parts at Marine and Reef. I have plenty of stuff you can have too! Don't buy anything yet. Let's see what we can do free. I have something else to send you anyway.
Yep she a great one to have on our side.

I'm not going with a hood. You have an amazing light that you have coming our way. And other goodies.
Marineand reef.com has, (pricey??) the newest LED hood for it, which is wifi controlled. Before I upgraded, I had this hood and it was growing corals nicely, Also had a clam growing under them.
@Katrina71 has some amazing goodies heading our way. We have decided not to replace the hood. Way to expensive and go with an open top. We are going with a screen top. This is going to be a slick build.
@crusso1993 you where talking clamps and not squishy ones @Magellan uses from his so. Can you post?
