I've seen the garf website stuff, actually I am more looking for pictures of people's setups and some ideas on what's worked for different people.

This is probably not what you are looking for but here is my setup.

I have since taken the old PH out and put in a minijet. I added more LR and the power filter has sand, rubble and cheato on the filter compartment. The lights are a DIY PC with 2x32 50/50 bulbs.

The key is shallow for effective lighting. Here is a prop I recently built for someone. 110 Gallons, 3'X4'X12" I have recently added a large overflow and I'll try to get him to send me a pic of it running. He has a single 400W HQI pendant over the center about 3' above.

That's more like it.

I think I'll set up a 10 gal for now and see what's what .
