I've over engineered this twice over from what the original plan was. My boyfriend is not thrilled about the idea of 200 gallons if water in the living room so he's double my over engineering. xD

LOL it seems like this is backwards, I thought usually the girl was supposed to be the one not thrilled by the guys fish keeping hobby.

I don't know what to believe anymore!

If I can get the intensity of light in a pendant that speakerman recommended, I think that would probably be the best way to go. Pendants solve the problem of lighting around the beam.

Partypalooza: he wouldn't let me turn the office into a 1500 gallon tank yet. For some reason he doesn't think it would be a good idea. Yeah, the rest of the house would be cramped but I don't see the problem.
