    Re-vamped Lcd Layout In New Hood

    Testing the remote control LED Light Strip system - not bright enough (hard to tell from the pic though) so that is being upgraded and I'll now use it on my older build as I'm chuffed with the re-vamped lighting I have right now on this hood! The original vertical layout - not my plan, was fine...

    Anyone Use Remote Control Led System (not Fluval)

    Is that The Fluval set (Hagen) .. yeah I looked into those here but for this size of tank with import duties etc it'd cost me closer to $200 as opposed to the $30 I shelled out for this but good suggestion if you can pick em up easily and cheap enough..... I'm talking 'generic' here.... DiY builds

    Finally got round to rounding off this build - Light Canopy and my original lighting plan plus a few new inhabitants and some Tank Bling!

    Re-vamped Lcd Layout In New Hood

    Just putting the finishing touches on my new 46 Gallon / 160 Liter Tank. The lighting system I had been using never grabbed me... The guy who wired it up initially ignored my instruction and mounted the lights vertical. As a result the lighting was unbalanced and uneven and not very bright at...

Am in the process of upgrading the lighting and although it doesn't look like it in the photo thisRemote Control LED system I bought is a little weak...

    for a 30 gallon you should be safe enough with 6mm glass but you need to use special Silicon Like Dowsil Magenta from Dow Cornish which is a bath and shower sealant but more importantly is non fungicidal. As for the tiling angle - I use silicone for that too... there is a glass calculator on...

    40 Breeder Build

    Nice Job! Pretty similar to my own builds this but I just use plain black Contact paper for my backgrounds and carry it on around the sides a but (20% -30%). You're all set to go bar the water changes... I am kinda luck as I had 2 other tanks to draw water from which radically accelerates the...

    Hi Momgoose... I used 8mm Glass for this (I could actually have gotten away with 6mm but 7mm was ideal. The problem was they don't stock odd sized where I buy my glass here in Lima so I went with the 8mm. I have a double base for security so again had the glass but carefully and exactly to spec...
