If you intend to make it high light and do ground cover I would consider the 36w model vs. The 27w that Nick and I have.

EDIT: never mind you said low light. 27w should do ya.

I'm thinking of doing something like this. I want to see how it turns out and learn something. It's jenna's fault as well. Lol.

Ahhh..now I want to de-rim my 10g again! But I wonder if it could hold a light with legs that way. I can't hang a light over it, so that might hold me back. Hmm...might have to de-rim a 5.5g...see, you are flaring up my MTS!!

Interested to see what you do with this one!! I know it will look good!

That is a good point. Someone mentioned when they had a clamp on HQI, a HOB filter, and a HOB skimmer (I know that's a lot more weight, lol) they did in fact break their de-rimmed tank. If it were me I'd do just one: either a light or HOB.

I agree. Will be following along and looking for updates on this one!

I'd almost be willing to try this myself but after the fiasco we had a few weeks ago with the bottom rim falling of one of our 20 gals (and the resulting water mess!) I think I'll just sit back and watch you! :p

Sadly, I haven't really had much time to work on this tank. I have got the back painted black, and did a little more scraping of the silicone, but that's it. I hope to start setting it up tomorrow. I"m still torn between the nice looking fixture that fort linked, or a DIY type fixture that will cost 1/3 or less. I'm almost thinking of securing the fixture to the wall to take any stress of this super thin glass.
