i think i saw a youtube vid too.

if you change your mind about the motor:
ebay is a great place for those oddball finds. rather i should say ive had good luck on it. sweety pie just sold her 55g and i sent our ac50 filters with it. i also have an ac70 and the little motor assy is a confirmed direct fit. thats just fyi btw.

Thats' a top of the line T5 setup thats for sure. Just make sure you're gonna have the tank long enough to warrant the high cost. I upgraded my first 29g within a few months. lol

I def know what you mean with that. I would love to go bigger but the house im currently living in will not support a large tank. Alot of the floors are uneven and not much space. This will be my third tank. 55 gal planted, 28g green spotted puffer tank and now this one. Unless i invade my basement area i have no more room. Plus i feel down the road if i do go bigger which im sure i will. Thia tank can be used as a grow out tank or like a "sexy tank" type deal. I wont ever get rid of it

Good to know, just checking..lol I'm also at full capacity as far as room for tanks go as well. For that kind of money you could get SOL led's units but not sure if that would come out more or the same with the add-ons.
