    Been lurking in the shadows sucking up as much information as possible here. Searching now for a decent light setup 2xT5's 54w. - @Shihr gave me some tips via email - Thanks Richard

    anyways, want to go planted, slowly getting there. Tank looks terrible compared to what you guys are showing so will post a pic maybe one day when I'm remotely close.

    Ok who want's to see my progress over the months from my terrible tank to where it is now? still terrible but not as..

    I'm still loooong way to where I need to be, still building that light fixture (Rain is slowing me down with painting now) and started on a reactor.

    I can't really say when each photo was taken, but every weekend I worked on it and more often enough I documented it just after a rescape or work done..

    then I got some Java Moss..

    God I've so seen the light now days thanks to @larch, This forum and members I've chatted to.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Designed my light fixture in sketchup.

    Which went together with physical planning..

    Dante keeping tabs on my progress at all times.

    will post more images in a sec on new post.
