The sun has risen in my living room.
So I finally got my aquarium stand, sump and hood finished for my 16 gallon tank. I set it all up tonight, through in some of that "Agra-alive" sand stuff and 'dead' rocks' and put the 5 gallons of Distilled water I already have in there (after I mixed in the salt) I have to wait until morning for the grocery store to open to get more water.
So anyway... I made my own lights... I have 2, 20 watt 6500k and 2 20 watt 10,000k lights. holy cripes! I turned the thing on and it was like the sun rose in my friggen livingroom! It's REALLY bright! It really does look like daylight. I had tested it previously and it didn't seem so blinding. I think the bowfront of the tank is having some sort of lensing effect or something. I'm going to have to drop little sunglasses in there before I put any fish in.
