    Default My Tank All Lit up

    I never got a picture of my tank with water in it and the antinic lighting, so heres a couple. I just bought all the Carib-Sea Moon Rock today and stocked it. 50 lbs. of the moon rock and 15 lbs of black lava rock. Right now the tank is still cycling.

    Ya LJ i know it looks a lil messy. I havent gotten around to it yet. It will look much better when i get the background to hide all the wires. I still need to get some suction cups to hold that eheim intake down...lol it shots toward the front of the tank.

    Man...If i were you i add white light in the front and leave the blue at the back it makes your tank look deeper and wider. good luck on your Aquascaping .
