custom tank build

ok so I'm undecided on the tank measurements that I want. I want a cube 35x35x35 that's 185 gallons.

Ok so my question is, is that to deep for light penetration ? I will be using dimable LEDs from rapidled.com

Yup. That'll work. I would get powerful lights to start with but if you think about it is like lighting any 3x3 tank. Just depends on the depth if placement.

My tank is about 34 deep and my LEDs reach bottom. As a matter of fact I had to pull them up to 11 from water. I have two bubble tip nem,s at bottom and they are doing great
