Nice Edi :thumbsup:

I am jealous you are getting solar tubes I want them so bad if my tank was on the other side of the house they would be in

Will be a master piece no doubt

I might go hybrid on this tank. Trying something new. Zeo dosing with bio-pellets.

There's just so much sunlight hitting my man cave. Be a shame not to utilise this natural resource. DOn't mind the kiddy fence. That's keeping the wife and kids out. :roflmao: :roflmao:
