    Be gentle with the posts on the left - if you've used silicone to 'glue' them in. IIRC, I learned the hard way that aquarium silicone doesn't bond with PVC the same way it does with clean glass....

    Yes, I've learned this too. Luckily, cable ties and I are still on pretty good terms. The silicone is just to help keep things from sliding around too much.

    Anyway. It's done for now. Way too much open space, I think :P time to start adding to the collection.

    As for specifications, as said, it's a 75 gallon tank. Lighting is 2 Coralife 48" aqualights, each holding 2x 65W PC fluorescent, 6500K bulbs. The divider was to provide more growing space, and to separate roughly the low light and high light plants. Most were kept under relatively high lighting before, but if something starts to show signs of stress, I can place window screening on top of that side of the tank for shading. There are also 2 fans in the front upper corners of the tank for circulation, hooked up to a dimmer switch to control airflow. The carnivore shelf is bending more than I wanted it to, so I'll have to add a support in the middle.

    That came out very nice. Looks like it's time to expand your collection.

    It's VERY easy to set up. And not terribly expensive. I'll HOPEFULLY have some orchids coming in from Thailand to fill it out a little better, and as soon as some more pots, treefern, and heat packs come in, I'll probably have a lot of stuff for trade, for those of you who may be into orchids. Anyway, if anyone needs any details on how to build this, just ask. It really isn't a complex setup. Thanks for the comments!
