Not bad. Try putting the powerhead on the opposite side as your filter. Put it low and point it up. This will help with CO2/oxygen exchange and be an attempt to 'push' uneaten food/poop into the filter for removal.

Great idea! I'm mounting a bracket on the wall and suspending the light.

Very soon hopefully! I have already run into my first problem though...
My lovely brother pulled on the suspension cables.. Now I can't figure out how to pull them back out... If I left them I would have a 2ft gap between light and tank.

If you hold in that sticky out springy thing on top the wire should slide free.
