Looks good TL. I want to be at that stage in the game but I know I'm months away.

Thanks - Patience and a lot of money are key... I'm glad you're going high-tech - I was wanting to see how LED's and an MP-10 / 40 would do in our size tank.

Is the MP-10 going to be big enough? I was thinking an MP40 since its rated 50+ gallons and up.

I figured if I was gonna do this I wanted to do it right. I talked to the sales manager at ecotech regarding the light and the mp10 and mp40. He told me that I should be happy with the light for my tank and that the 40 was prob a bit much. Either way I would rather go with two 10s than one 40, bux for now I'm gonna just get the one 10 to start with and see how it works. Surprisingly I've read that ecotech underrates their powerheads as far as flow. I can't remember the university who did the study but they actually rated the flow higher than ecotech itself. Usually companies tend to overrate their specifications. I just hope I put together a decent tank. Time will tell

Good to know. Research is key, but keep it up and I have no doubt you will have an amazing tank soon enough.

They are very nice looking - thanks!

I'm not unhappy at all, I just had to hash out a new plan when I got home. I actually just planned to have the acro on the right and the pagoda on the left... Just had to switch em.

A local guy that is friends with the guy I deal with at the LFS, is fragging a really sweet pink birdsnest next week, so i got invited back for 1st dibs on the biggest / nicest pieces. Yay!
