Thanks everyone! I will have my tank back at the beginning of next week. I didn't think I'd be good enough to retrofit lights (plus, based on the original hood that I am keeping, it needed a dremel and other tools I didn't have) so it is off being worked on at the LFS
. I am really excited to get it started.
Ziggy, no worries. I am well aware of challenges I face. I already plan to have water premade on hand for topping off each night. The only thing I haven't figured out is what to do when I leave town. But, that won't be too often.
