    Well, we had our big "aquarium reveal" party this weekend (oh, and I guess there was also a gender reveal for my daughter, it's going to be a girl!!). Everyone was impressed. I'm happy with how this build turned out. The tannins from the driftwood actually help soften the look, which I think...

    I'm surprised that my plants are still green considering the water has been a constant 70 degrees, much cooler than these plants typically grow in, actually seeing some impressive growth. If they continue to thrive I'm planning to put some in the aquarium, although it's almost a guarantee...

    Keeping the bright lights off to let them acclimate to their new home. They look so much better in real life than I can capture with a picture.

    My little peanuts arrived today, I couldn't get a food count but they all survived the trip. The company said since they are so young it's not uncommon to expect a 20% loss during the acclimation process. We will see.

    @Sunnyspots definately like how its turning out!!! I think once I get the lights dialed in it'll look amazing. The overall project really wasn't to bad, just a lot of waiting for silicon to cure and sourcing the glass took a lot more time than I anticipated.

    Installed a new light fixture. Still playing with the intensity but it definately brighten it up. Still a lot of tannins in the water but I guess that's to He expected with this much wood. Fish arrive tomorrow!!!!!
