After you get your new filter and the water clears up, I hope you post a new series of pictures in your album in your profile.

That is a VERY nicely decorated tank twolfsbane. I like tanks that have their own special look ...... and yours seems to be one of those.

I'm a mess of filters and wires at the moment, but i got the c4 today, and its up and running. The c4 is wider, so it didn't initially fit, but i managed to work one corner far enough away from the wall to get it started. There's not enough room on the back for both filters without cutting more off my hood (which i won't do) so I've got my old one hanging of the front.
It looks so bad right now, but its worth it.
Also got the purigen in there, already seeing a huge improvement!

I had to run my 15 inch long aqua-tech 30-60 on the front for a while for the same reason .... but like you said, it's worth it. Glad to hear the Purigen is working. And don't be disappointed if the polishing pad portion of the poly/fiber mechanical pad clogs up very quickly and the little red button pops up. That is normal the first time or two that you use a polishing pad since it's having to remove a buildup of fine "micron" particles that has accumulated since you first set up your tank.

Very nice! I love those shelf kits you assemble yourself. I have seen these so many times and almost bit. Do you ever worry about the sharp edges? Seems like they are VERY sharp to me.....

I love my shelves, never had any issues with the edges, but i don't have big fish either. My biggest issue with the shelves are that my loaches like to try and wedge themselves between the glass and shelf- they don't get stuck, but after a month or so, they've worked the suction cups off the glass, and i have to re-attach them. With the larger kit, you can adjust the support pillar heights- but they don't interlock well, so i ended up having to glue them.
