    not a bad start. I've always kinda dug hex tanks if they are big. just going off experience from my 36 I only had 1 powerhead and the filter outlet. I found it was much better adding another powerhead. looks good so far though

    Looks great Kyle, Do you have a pair of clowns or just one? Is the flower pot in hope of a future breeding location? Looks very nice either way.

    Its just terra cotta clay so I dont think that it would leach anything harmful, If I am wrong please correct me. They have been used in freshwater ciclid breeding for years and they use ceramic tiles for clown breeding, I actually like the look of it and think it will be sweet when its covered in coraline. Natural no...cool yes, Ive seen some antique wine bottles in tanks that look awesome.

    The guy busted out the bottom and polished the edges with a sander so not sharp edges, I think he put a power head in them too. Looks awesome. He used the old green glass type so that its hard to see the PH too. Good way to hide some equiptment

    kyle, how is the skimmer working for you??? Is it a ccs 65 ?? i had tons of microbubbles at first then i just tilted the outout so it is above the water going into the cup instead of under the water going into the cup.
