I just read the comment you wrote. This is your 1st tank? It looks really good and I never would have thought it was the 1st time for you. How long have you been in the hobby of keeping fish? I don't know if you read my original comment, but I've been doing this for a few years now (about 40). In all seriousness, It looks GREAT! And...Welcome to Fish keeping, I hope it brings you many years of pleasure.

It would be better if I could keep the fish from dying, as I lost another one today. I hate that; especially when they don't live in my tank for very long. The blue color is from 3 LED lights I have just above the water line. I built a 3 inch tall box to sit on top of the tank and large enough to accommodate the hood. In the middle of the height and towards the back side of center, I added a 1/2 X 1-1/2 inch piece of wood with a pin in each end. It runs the length of the tank and the pins are placed into holes on the side boards to allow the piece of wood to pivot. I attached the 3 light fixtures to the wood and have them on a timer so they come on about 15 minutes before the bright fluorescent lights do; and go off shortly after. They come on again about 15 min before the fluorescents go out and they stay on for about 1 hr afterwards. I think it helps, the fish are not startled by the sudden flashing of the fluorescent lights coming on or by the sudden darkness when they go out. They look pretty cool too. I used to hear fish banging into the glass after being startled when the lights would come on in the morning, but not since I installed the blue ones.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
See ya! Gave you another vote also!

Great looking tank! I like the set-up allot! Have you had any problems with the tetras? I had a few of them once. I found them to be a bit too agressive, and that they were fin nippers.

Nice setup, I like the design and the work that went into it. The driftwood and rocks really make it shine.
