    How do you like the dimensions of the tank? I love the concept of a shallow but wide aquarium.

    Taking some getting used to. Definitely made aquascaping more difficult. Overall I like it. Now I just need to put some time in to filling it up and letting it grow out.

    I need more sand and to fine tune the MP40s. I can't deal with that bare patch.

    On hold. Just found out my Mother-in-Law has stage IV lung cancer. Poker room is just not a priority right now. Nor is the tank.

    Family first. Always.

    You prefer the T-5 light? Did you switch bc of lack of spread? I can't kick wanting to incorporate T5. Ironically I have two one waaaay to big and one to small. Everyone says sell both obviously.

    I came across a good deal on an ATI fixture. Was much cheaper than adding the extra Kessil that the tank needed.
