Now that lights are on, here are better shots:
Do bear in mind that taking pictures on an acrylic tank can be VERY tricky as acrylic acts as a magnifying glass at certain angles and especially when trying to get a close-up. Tank is 9 weeks running this Sunday !

Some nice shots.

I liked how they started very clear and slowly became more and more blurry. I was like, "Ohhhh we got a drinker taking pictures!" But then you recovered on the last few pics and ruined my theory!

That was when I was getting too close and I realized Blurr. I reordered proper size lens filters for my DSLR today. That camera will take some mind-blowers for pics. These are my phone with a filter

4’!!! I regret getting mine 11’x3’x2.5’ I can’t imagine how hard cleaning a 4’ deep tank is!
Easy - always clean. You have a nice tank yourself !!

Thank you. So what’s your secret on keeping it clean? I have a 120 watt pentair UV with 550 gph going through it and I still have to clean the glass weekly or it gets a haze.

1oz of peroxide per day. Cleaning glass is now every 9-11 days. Tank is peninsula so im able to go across tank with a 34" acrylic scraper and algae pad
 

How do you keep your aquarium temperatures down during the hot months?
