lol, stocking becomes infectious.

If you could stay with your plan it makes for an awesome display. Seen a tank on one of the boards, cant remember, RC I think. Same size tank as that were the guy had about 4 or 5 pieces well spread out that he let grow out. Probably took a couple of years to get it to the point it looked in the photo's, but it was spectacular. Made a change from looking at those sardine crammed tanks.

1. Why is this under Nano Tanks ????

2. Tank is looking great so far phat, I assume the centre tower is for water to get into the CLS, how does the water get into the tower? It looks pretty well sealed to me.

3. Dave is rather fond of that cap isn't he :p
