Went on a shopping spree and spent WAY to much. Got a blue planet tank maid internal filter 700L/H.

The t4 light I got yesterday.

And some awesome wood I found at the aquarium makers.
It looks like the tv is turned on and the aquarium is the tv show lol

Here we go. Sorry the pics are so dark. Substrate, wood and plants are in. Lots of tinkering will take place over the next few weeks. I'm not happy with it yet. Going to position all equipment out if sight eventually. It needs an extra inch or so of water in it but I don't have a lid to protect the light yet. The filter needs a spray bar. Its blowing the plants about too much. The button panel will have to wait a bit. I seem to have lost the screws during our move but I'm sure they will show up.

Thanks guys
All went well over night so I changed half the water to remove some tannin and added 3 cories this morning as well as some seeded media. Got a new lid cut this morning for $16. Very happy with that. Also made a spray bar out of some old canister filter tubing. The tanks coming together nicely!
