    goldfish tank eh? than those are probably calcium deposits. had to clean tons of that on my 80gal. best way to do it is to just mix water and vinegar in a spray bottle. works great. razor blades may be needed for bad spots.

    AWESOME! you rocked out a MH on your ten huh? Lookin good so far. so when is the rock hitting that bad boy? is your skimmer going to facilitate all the flow for that tank? how much flow is it producing? I have been thinking i need to hang my light too, but alas am not sure how to do it.
