After receiving the tank from the Oakland Raiders old headquarters in Alameda, I had work to do. They had the light suspended from the ceiling. That wasn’t an option for me. I had to get creative.

Have been an active A's and Raiders fan since '71. However the mixing of sports and politics is a big turn off sadly. Wish them well in Vegas.

Build title caught my attention. Looks like you are off to a great start. Any pics of it in its original form?

Thanks! He should have a larger one in the new digs. It is a nice place at least what I have seen from the outside.

He does. It’s a long tank. My guess is at least 500 gallons from what I saw. It’s in the wall and can be viewed from 2 offices.

So I changed out the light on my tank. I went with the AquaticLife HM Electronics CoreXC Wireless Marine/Reef LED. Seems like a really nice quality light. I’ll be posting the progress and pic updates.
