Also got another nice paly frag. Will snap some pics when everything is open and enjoying some LED lighting. I made sure to match the light levels for the most part from my buddy's LFS, but started a bit lower to acclimate.

Use the very top choice "direct link" on photobucket, and paste it into the "insert image" box (the second from the last icon just above the text box).

I do use direct link and do copy/paste. There's no insert image box. Certain reason you're telling me this? Not at all trying to sound ride Mr X, didn't know if the pics didn't show up or not...??

Flaxon....I really like your aqua scape! I like the multiple mounds and caves scattered. After seeing your return I think I want to set my up like that and not drill for a return. I'm getting a eheim compact 3000 for my current40 build as well. How's the initial thought? First time buying eheim.

Thanks! I use the Eheim compact plus 3000. Very quiet, and also adjustable. Takes 3/4" plumbing as well (if I remember correctly). And yes, don't drill the return if you don't need to, which on a rimmed tank is not needed. I just ran soft plumbing to a dual loc line return. Was very easy to set up. Actually, none of my plumbing is PVC, it's all flexible...

I switched things up a bit, Here's a new scape pic...
