Default my build.

Well its only starting stages. I still need a light and ultrasonic humidifier so I can get the moss and plants. Prob wont be able to get those until November.

As for lights I plan on using T5 lighting (cheaper to run and last longer than t12's and are brighter). I am thinking a 4 bulb setup with one 10000k 2 6500k and 1 5400k bulb.

onto some pics

yes I drilled it myself. I have bits to drill for 3/4", 1" and 1.5" bulkheads.

thats a video of me drilling it. Its just shy of 6 minutes long. I used a Diamond bit Hole saw from www.glass-holes.com to drill it. If I remember correctly the Diamond bit I used for this was 1 3/4" because the bulkhead is a 1" bulkhead. I will most likely be doing a 3/4" flex tubing upto the tank and well you need a bigger drain than your inlet is :d. The bottom pane isnt tempered so if you plan on ever drilling a tank you need to make sure the bottom pane isnt tempered (or whatever pane you drill). I just guess that this one isnt tempered because I have never seen a 29g tank with a tempered bottom and it wasnt tempered . You will know its tempered because it will shatter once you hit the plastic point. I have drilled my saltwater aquarium for an overflow and returns so I drilled 3 holes in the back pane on my 29g saltwater aquarium.

I am thinking about

for lighting but I will probably go with something cheaper and/or have a canopy made so that I can do a retrofit setup.
