    Here are also two more pictures.

    This is the moon lights.
    Sorry my phone camera doesn't take very good pictures at night.

    Here is a picture with the canopy open.
    You will see the LED spots in the front.
    Also have 3 more of them in the back.
    Each one produces 800 lumen per spotlight.
    T5's mounted in the centre of the canopy (8 of them)
    And the 6500k for midday.

    (No fish in this picture as they are all sleeping. Just put the lights on for a quick photo).

    Hi there.
    The tank is one that I purchased from a local pet shop upon arriving in South Africa from the UK last year May.
    It is drilled with a corner overflow.

    Aye, the glass is moulded to form seamless round corners in the front if the tank.
    So one piece of glass for sides and front.

    From what I can see the bracing is 10mm glass and the rest of the tank is 12mm glass.

    Thanks, a friend of mine dad got a tank like that, the problem is, the corners where the glass is bended, the glass is much thinner and it tends to crack on the corner due to the fact that they heat it up and bend the glass, so the glass stretched and becomes weak at the corners... and that is where his tank cracked... very good price, just scared of the bending factor…

    Never had an issue with it, nor any one I know of.
    Glass on this is the same thickness all round even on the bended corners.
    Originally bought it for R14,5k so perhaps the quality is better??

    Flogging the tank as I'm downgrading to a custom starphire tank.

    Q
