    Thanks ive been looking forward to this exact one since it was announced. Had it bought through my lfs weeks ago but when the aquarium arrived they dropped it... so long story short I went ahead and ordered online.

    Thanks I'm trying to keep the rock work to a minimum and maximizing the use of the bio bricks by brightwell aquatics

    Little bit of a stall during cycling, I added the pink Fiji sand on the 19th and the tank is still cloudy. It is also giving off a faint smell. Not sure what's going on but I'll try to figure it out

    It looks great! I'm still super jealous of the deluxe hanging light kit! I wish they'd sell that as an addon.
