    Tank is looking very cool! Nice setup and scaping

    I like ur inline filter, we often under estimate the importance of mechanical filtering, just a suggestion though, you have this above and electrical source, i would remove one or the other for safety ans stop uneccesary accidents

    Hay bud thanx for the complement as for the plugs it looks like its directly under the box but it is not and the filter box is designed in a way that it can not over flow if the filter floss gets blocked so I think it is safe but thanks for the tip

    your in-line filter box, what prevents water splashes in case of a blockage?
