Ok, so after reading and being incredibly inspired by Talldutchie's tank journal, I have decided that I do not know anywhere near enough (yet) about anything to be doing permanent things like drilling holes in the tank. I noticed even Talldutchie moved around his drain and return, well into the tanks journey.
The health of the creatures inside the tank is much more important to me than aesthetics, so I will live with plumbing hanging over the side until I know everything is flowing and working nicely. At a later date I may drill the tank when I inevitably buy a bigger one. First I'd like to get confident with the one I am starting now.
I only have the camera on my phone, but I will take some shots of the components I have and post them tonight (Dubai time).
I saw some beautiful green tetras at the LFS, so I might kick off with a few of these and some low light plants.
Now, I'm off to get some silicon on my hands :)
