Maybe use three or four for durability.
For a temporary fix until you can get the 20h lid

I used this technique with a plastic tub I used as a back up "tank" when I was unexpectedly given a bunch of fish for a tank I hadn't been able to set up. Then after that I just used the light on some plastic tubs for the extra plants I got too and it worked great.

Use your 2x4 to get the light up higher to reach right next to where the plants are.

I'll post this in the planted section too. Thanks!

Day of Doom?

Well our town water is contaminated and every where around us is flooded.

It is now pouring rain and I wouldn't be surprised if we get an evacuation notice before long.

I have all the lights on in the tanks just in case the electric goes out they will get a last amount of light till I don't know when. Fed everybody.

Pray for us, (my family is alright, but apprehensive) so many people around us have had life changing experiences, in the local areas most water is contaminated and roads and bridges have been washed out and made unstable. The rivers and streams have gone way over the banks. This area has a bunch of water because of the rivers, it is a waterway more or less.

They are saying 500 year flood. We have had as much water fall in 4 days as we normally have ALL year.

So if I end up not posting for awhile, that is why.

Hope the weather gets better soon. Sounds like a flood!!! It's terrible that you guys might have to evacuate. Here in Hawaii, the floods can get crazy, but not as crazy as what your going through.

I give you, your family, and fishes my blessing. Stay safe friends!

Yes lay up against the glass, vertically instead of horizontally.


Well tried to go to work but all the roads were closed. We were on TV Denver channel 7 a little while ago.
