Wow that looks great! Your tank is gorgeous.

Yes, I love the phoenix look.

Well, I wasn't sure how to hang them nicely so it would look good. Haivng a cord running to the celing, then the power cord out the back probably won't look the best with two small stand alone fixtures. That's why I was thinking the larger system would look better.

Alright... so the sunpod is out. Now I just have to figure out how to hang my pendants in a nice way.

I was also thinking of getting the 250w Lumen Max 3 reflectors.. but still the same problem of how to hang them nice... and the cords come out of the side of the unit.. not the back.. which kinda sucks!

Lumen Max 3

Hello Again-- I failed to mention that I do not have my canopy on. I was in the process of doing some repair and stopped because I ordered a new tank yesterday and waiting to finish it when it comes in.---Jerry

Jerry - why do you need a canopy? Looks great the way that it is!

NG - the power cord for the Lumen Max 3 comes out the side?? Who says? It's square and symmetrical, right? Turn it 90 degrees and voila, the power cord comes out the back! Nothing wrong with running the bulb perpendicular to the tank.

Tuesday Update!

Well, we did it! We ordered the Tech 120 tank so it's a definite now. We got a really good deal on it locally, so that make it a bit nicer. It should be here next Tuesday.

We also received our 20 pounds of Marco Tonga Shelf rock that finally arrived. I'll post some photos of it later.

On a side note, I took four of my gliders today to be neutered... so I'm a bit nervous about that. I am waiting for a call from the Dr. to see how surgery went!

YAY! I can't wait to follow the 120 build from the start! Congrats on the purchase.

Good luck with the gliders - you should think about bringing Melev as well. ZING!

Why would you do that? Does it cut down on odor?

Their female partners are three years now and it's unsafe to continue to breed older females. I also am tired of trying to find quality homes for all of the babies.

I am still producing my leucistic pair and my white variation pair.. but I went down to only two producing females now.

Maybe the Dudester can lend you his equipment, especially the special microsurgery glasses.

So you are the one that keeps sending me those viagra emails. I've been wondering who knew about my lack of prowess.
