My only concern is the sides. Your getting a shadow so you'd have to be weary on what corals you place where.


That's about it. Love the light mount and how you did it all. Great job on cleaning and re turning it to new!!

Good luck!

That makes sense and honestly that sounds pretty cool and different. Kinda like leaving it open for "free swim?"

I like the idea.
