Can anyone tell me if the honeycomb trim around the rim of the tank is toxic or not? I scraped it off with a razor blade but little particles are floating along the top now.
Well toxic I don't think so but I would try to take it out. You can use some paper towel sheet, let it float for 1 second and take it out, it should trap everything on the surface. Repeat few times you should be able to remove the floating stuff. Otherwise just use a jug..

Gotta bump this thread lol, anybody in here running Radions on this tank? I want to upgrade lighting (I’m currently running double Marine 3.0s.) and I’m thinking I’m gonna just go all the way and do either 2 G6 XR15s, or a single G6 XR30. Problem is I’m wondering if the RMS arm mounts fit on this tank. Hanging mounts are not an option for me.

The rms mount will work. If you run a single xr30 you will block up your center chamber a little bit. If you run 2 xr15s you block up your two side chambers and have to remove the lights every time you clean the filters. You are better off running the lines from the sides with the rail across the top

I’m not sure what you mean by “rail across the top”, do you have any pictures? I know what you mean by lights on the side, I would just mount them on the side walls instead of the back, but they’re gooseneck style mounts from what I’ve seen, so I’m not sure what rail you’re referring to.
