    Here it is up and running with the two clowns from the lfs.
    I’m loving this aquanest m8 and the features it has everything right out the box you need to run it.
    Haven’t pushed it to the max on lighting.
    Right now it’s running at 15% and sps mode.

    Finished the stand not sure if I want to paint or leave it as is. Looks a little better than the basic diy wood stand.
    Will be adding led lights under the top lip .
