OK - I'm just starting out and I'm already obsessed!

Today I ordered a glass hood/canopy for my tank so I could put a larger fixture on it - and get more light!

See, this is why DH didn't want me to do this in the first place! :c10:

I got 5 zebra danios today to help cycle the tank (was going to get 4 but the PetSmart gal said schools should be an odd number??) I have to say it looks a bit silly to have 5 tiny danios in that big 44g tank, but I won't push it. Gotta have a healthy tank for healthy fish and plants.

Hey I was wondering if you could tell me where you got your new glass top canopy from for that tank. I have the same one, and interested in it. :)

Just FYI.

Thats... strange. never heard that before. Usually the people that work there are pretty oblivious anyway. SHe probably meant the male to female ratio or something. Haha.

I was considering getting a glass canopy, but I already had a plastic one, so I just I bought a 65 watt retrofit kit for my 20 gallon.

I am not sure if I checked there or not, thanks gm. The only reason I asked Robin is because one of my 5 tanks just happens to be the same oddball type that they have. I love it, tall corner tank, have had it for I think 4 years now. The only option I have found for a glass top so far is go down to my local glass shop and have it custom cut to fit...not cheap. There is a pic in her threads..here is a good one.

Hi,I found this site while searching "pentagon" in aquarium forums.
I have this same tank and I'm in the process of having a glass top cut for me.
I was wondering what lighting you where leaning towards?

I currently have the standard hood w/ 2-15w bulbs but need more light. I am considering the Current dual 40w or the Coralife 96w quad.
Any advice/recommendations-thanks

I haven't really decided yet. Hubby caught me looking at lights yesterday and gave me the what for about spending more money on the tank. :scry:

you can also get the glass hood at fish.com You get free shipping for order over 50 dollars. They charge 1-2 dollars more for the extra weight of the glass.
