    Good looking tank. Do you cover it? If not, I would build a screen cover to keep the fishies in.

    Each person has a very limited amount of storage space on here. What most of us do is get a photobucket account (free), upload to photobucket, then paste the img link here when posting. It'll show up just like it was uploaded here.

    Nice work on the scape. I still haven't forgotten you for the glass cover. I didn't even think about acrylic. I have some in the garage but i'm not sure if any of the sheets are big enough to make a cover out of.
