This has been taking up my life for the past month. I stripped all the old varnish, did a lot of sanding and applied new stain and varnish! I was finally able to put it together tonight! The sump and canister are all plumbed in and ready for some fish! I would love some comments on what plants I should tie to that piece of drift wood. I want plants that need more light toward the top and plants with less light needs on the bottom. I'm planning on putting discus in here so I'm doing a bare bottom so all plants must be tied to the drift wood. Thanks! The first picture is the tank when I first purchased it. What a change!
