What kind of filter are you running on it? Just wondering. I may have missed it earlier in the thread.

Be ready to show picks of what you've got. I love looking at water treatment equipment haha. Always neat to see new life support systems out there.

I'm moving to a small apartment or efficiency so I won't have the room for it.
Btw, how much was your tank and that sheet of aluminum? How many leds are you going to attach to it?

The aluminum was $250 and the tank was half my budget... I'm attaching close to 1000W to it.

Fine... I'm having 45-55 LED dies each die has 20 1W diodes on it. The dies need good heat dispensation because all of the diodes are so close together. Hence the big @$$ heat-sink

Well this is me soldering the pipe to the aluminum plate (to fill in gaps and help with heat transfer) It's kinda messy but a little cleaning and it won't look too bad... plus it will be on the side nobody can see
