Don't laugh because it's not done yet!

My ex built me this to house my shop light so it's not sitting on the open tank anymore. But he forgot to bring his saw and it needs lowering about 6" on both ends. Looks pretty dumb this high up, I know, but you get the idea.

I want to put tall bog plants in it and also some ivy's on the top of the frame so it's still a work in progess.

Will update when done.

You just wait until I get that baby cut down and plants all over the place!! LOL

I hated trying to clean my tank with that light just perched on top the tank. I always thought I'd knock it in the water.

Once its lower it will look quite nice.

Yep it looks just a tad too high. I have the same problem, light always gets in the way. But if I remove the light fixture and put it aside while cleaning, the tank doesn't have enough light for me to see the algae on the glass, and hard to see where I am cleaning. Think my ideal light fix would be one that I can lower/raise with chain/rope over the tank.

Nothing to see yet. Same thing but shorter but here it is.

I want to fill the back up with tall plants like in a riparium.

And he hasn't eaten a fish yet! My tank is at the end of 10 days without a cleaning.......OBVIOUSLY.....due to water lines being flushed here and I hope I can get to it today! Looks awful.
