    Aluminum Stand - DIY

    Ended up getting a quote for the aluminum build and it was right at $1,000. I'd still have to wrap it with wood. I'm going the plywood route. Thank you.

    3/4" or 1" return - help please

    New Tank New Tank I am about ready to pull the trigger on the Mars Aqua LED's. My tank is 60"x20"x24"(deep). The tank has an enclosed hood that I was planning on installing them in (would this get too hot?). The lights would be about 6" off the water. I also have 2 new 12" power compacts...
