    I remember following the original tread when you were putting it together, still awesome! I hope my 240 looks half that good when I get it up and running.

    Congrats with your tank! It really looks nice! Click here to enlarge

    Can I know which fish you keep in your tank? 'Cause I've seen one discus, some Crossocheilus denisonii, a few Hemigrammus, I think a Gourami, of some kind, and could it be the Phenacogrammus interruptus..? Click here to enlarge

    That will work then. I'm sitting on a ton of MDF from a audio project that fell though. Looks like I finally have found a use for it after all!
