Well, I decided to go to a 55 gallon tank on it's side. I'll get more plant space and the lights will be closer. Thanks tp the person that posted the idea. I'll put plexy glass on the front and I'll have a total of six 4-ft. florescence lights on the top.
I am still looking for a neat way to mount the the hoods over the glass. How far should the lights be mounted from the glass?
My price tag seems to be growing fast and it will take me awhile to get it up and going. I hope I don't regret it. The tank I was looking at was 4ft long, 21inch high, 18 inches deep and it had a price tag of $170 for the tank. Has anyone see them cheaper?
What do you folks do to move air around? Any setup ideas?
