So I started this tank up last weekend. I chose not to use the base so I had to remove the tabs and inserts with my Dremel. I also lowered the height of the filter so it would not cascade into the tank. Again I used the Dremel to remove a section from the back piece and from the entrance collar on top of the tank. I intend to add some Anubias to the tank to complete the aqua scape. I am attempting to see how the LEDs do that come with the tank. It totals 4.6 watts with 42 LEDs, three of which are blue and can be used as moonlights. The fixture is rated at 7600K by Fluval. The water is a little hazy from the root wood staining the water and possibly from the substrate of Seachem Flourite.
