I just love what you did with that tank and stand. Sea horses are so neat. I will be following this thread to see how you progress. I wish you all the luck. Just remember as with all SW, slow and easy wins the race.

Thanks. That light should be fine. It has a single 96w 50/50 bulb so low light corals wil be fine.

The platic plants are fine, but need to be removed and cleaned regulary. As the tank matures you may be able to get some real plants in there.

haha thanks but it was definitely all my dad except for the tiling (though he also helped with cutting those too). ill probably get the doors (also made by dad) stained soon and get them on..ill take another picture when i do

Okay cool ill get the lights ordered right away then..not too much at the store today..wanted to get a couple hermit crabs but they had none in. My seahorses they are holding still look really good, ill bring them home soon. Also i named my darker male seabiscuit ... the rest are still unnamed haha

Okay so quick update everything is still doing fine. Haven't brought home the other two seahorses yet since ive been busy studying for finals.

Okay so now question, what kinds of glue are safe for the tank? I would like to make a feeding dish and glue a magnet (covered in fabric so it won't scratch) to a shell. I know that most super glues are safe, but i am not sure if super glue will stick to the shell/magnet very well. I was just wondering if there are any other safe glues?

I know it is thinking outside the box, and honestly have NO idea if it would work, but how about silicone?
