The bottom part is ready for clear varithane. The light will be mounted using black iron pipe. I will use some flanges to support it from the back and the rise up to height and then mount the lighting canopy. That way its neither hanging or sitting on the top but rigidely mounted over the top.
Rick, we already have a small reef with corals and fish. Nothing real exotic. The coolest thing we have in there is a snowflake eel. He gets hand fed. As Pete mentioned saltwater is expensive and difficult to maintain. So we keep it simple.
Pete, we also have a 100 gallon freshwater and soon will have a 110 gallon freshwater. The inhabitants of the freshwater are getting to big for their home so we are going to divide them up. One for more aggressive brutish fish and then one that will have live plants with angelfish and discus.
