Years to build

Hello I have been working on my 36 gallon bowfront aquarium for at least 2.5 years. It is filling in with plants. I think it is finally done and ready to show. I did a lot of research and changing of equipment. I also grew most of my plants in a growing aquarium. Here it is.

Lights: zoo med aquasun T5 HO dual light fixture with one ultrasun light and one florasun bulbs.

Filter: one fluval 305 canister filter

Circulation pump: one aqueon circulation pump model 950

Heater: glass heater can't remember the brand but its 200watts

Substrait: half caribsea black sand and half plantable substrait which name escapes me

Plants are all live. Real drift wood. Inhabitants include: one golden kille fish, 3 otos, 3 spotted Cory catfish, 2 turquoise rainbows, 3 boesemani rainbows and one golden goraumi ...

I know the rainbows will out grow this aquarium they will be sold soon.

That looks very nice! IMO very well done on both plants and aquascaping

But, boesmani rainbows get too big for that size tank, unfortunately

Very nice tank. How do you like that fixture? I have a 36 bowfront as well and have been eye balling that fixture. From the descriptions I have read of that fixture both bulbs have their own switches right?
