    How are you going to keep the light on the HOB from shining into the tank?

    Maybe a stupid question but when I tried one, I ended up with an (ugly) aluminum foil sorta wrapped around the clip on and the filter, and it was a pain to put off and on, the clip light would fall off...I ended up removing the fuge mainly because of that, and I didn't have a good enough light to grow chaeto.

    Im going to run the fuge reverse daylight from the main tank...given the solid black acrylic back I doubt that much light will get into the fuge during the day or much light into the main tank during the night. For light I was planning on a Tom Rapids Clip on light but the replacement bulb costs more than I paid for the fixture so Im now thinking of just using a 12" incandescent aquarium fixture fitted with a 15watt 6500K CFL. Im going to build a "light stand" using an extra AC110 media basket. The filter is currently being soaked and cleaned so the silicone will have a viable surface to attach to. I will start the mod once it is dry tonight, hopefully with photos

    ah, ic. I just used a clip on light, but the light shone into the tank over the top, not thru the back. So I never ran it reverse, tho I'd originally intended to.

    Interested to see how the 110 mod looks...its going to be a cool little tank!

    Going to need to run to the store and pick up some plastic mesh before the mod is complete. Pics to come in a few days...it should work pretty awesome. The first compartment will be chemical media(Purigen/SeaGel/Polyfilter) then the other 2/3 will be full on fuge with rubble and macro.

    I hope it ends up being a cool tank, and not a PITA like the 55G has become.
