Whole tank setup

I usually post close up pics of my tank but I wanted to take a pic of the whole tank set up. I dont like canopies so I have a long reflector hood over my 4 VHO bulbs. It`s just a different alternative to the canopy.

How about a pic of your plumbing under the tank. Just curious if you use pvc, spa-flex or clear tubing.

I have PVC there. I`ll see about some pics soon but it`s so dark and there is a middle brace that hides some of the fuge. But we will try.

Very nice! In that first photo, it almost looks like that Tang is PhotoShopped in! It's just so perfectly yellow, and at a perfect right angle to the camera. I know it's not... but it just kind of jumped out at me!

Scary to think that my "little" rock of purple mushrooms may look like yours some day! And to think of how many you've sold off already!
