    Here's the start of my freshwater planted tank. It's an 8 gallon rimless cube. I need to figure something else out for my light so the rim of the tank is exposed. I just threw this canopy together real quick.

    I'll be running a homemade CO[SUB]2[/SUB] reactor with a nice bubble counter and diffuser. Going to use black sand. I should have this going within a week.

    So you have me slightly jealous! I like where this is going. Good work on everything so far! Definitely waiting for the end results on this bad boy!

    Look like they are white, and the auto-WB on the camera screwed up a little.

    The light is super bright and will be more than enough to grow plants. I was kinda hoping for some short ground cover(babies breath) and a few taller plants. I have, somewhat, of an idea of the aquascape. I really like "that guys" tank.
