Most def. i mean its not gonna be 100% diy (gonna buy from rapidled.com) but it will still require some handwork. In a huge diy fan mainly for the simple fact that with about 75% of the products in question, you can build one yourself thats more affordable and even better in some cases. We may or may not venture into the coral side eventually, but that will be after the leds

Decided to do a 50g pwc about 4-5 days ago. Tank has responded well to it.
First fts is before the cleaning (notice the overflows and powereads)
Second and third shots are from today, so 3-4 days after.

Same here, vinegar soak for a few hours then i use a hard bristle toothbrush to scrub the crap off. The powerheads have always been one pf my biggest eye sores when dirty in the tank. I really wish i could run the tank without them
