Very nice aquascaping! Are those two different tanks? What is that lighting system in the last pic, and is that how the legs are supposed to be on? Sorry, just curious.

No that is the tank when i first filled it up and put live rock in and then the others are it like 3-4 months later, from the other night after i bought the frogspawn. i cant believe the difference myself.

The lights are T5s from this guy from fish need it;lights; food;Sponge; all in all its a decent fixture (4x39 watt bulbs)

I put the legs on backwards cause I have a glass top so they look weird in the pic, but i think i am going to just go with some egg crate cause the glass gets salty and im pretty sure im losing wattage that way. do you think i would lose light that way?

To answer your question yes. Anything less than 100% transparent limits the light penetrating into your tank. The loss may be negligible though, or it may be significant. You'd have to have one of those spectrum testers to find out for sure.

They do look sort of funny with the legs on the wrong way, like a bow-legged lighting system or something, lol.

Overall I think your rockwork looks really nice: there are plenty of places for your fish to swim around/through and I think they'll really like that.
