    Super nice man!

    What's that red plant on the left? Is it a floating plant?

    How much did you get the chiller for? Don't see any CO2 eh?

    Nice tank.[]
    Think the mh light is a little near to each other,can spread farther a little better.

    Thanx for your compliments and comments.

    Rain, the tank was already in my hall even b4 Teo got his. I did not complete it sooner cos I needed gravel from someone (pointing at Simon). BTW Simon, thanx for donating the gravel

    Gary, I do agree that the lights are a bit near. Reliased it after I put up the lights. After drilling for 2 hours for 2 holes, I decided to juz let them be. Hopefully it will not be a big factor.

    Eggz, The CO2 is indeed behind the filter. I'm using the ADA 50mm beetle to diffuse the gas.

    Simon, the tools only temp there. Not finished work yet.
    Cheers!!

    Wah... got chiller. I can only think of cooling fans for my tanks.

    Nice set up, but your layout got to wait till the plants grow out.

    An idea for the lights... put a bar between them to spread them out.

    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:

    Hi,

    Notice that you've also fixed lights in your lower cabinet. Simple feature that gives great returns.

    Hi Sherwin, nice.

    Mind if i ask how much the chiller costs? And is it very hot and high electricity consuming (guess they all are)? Thinking of getting a chiller myself.

    chillers are rated in horsepower.
    1 hp = 743w
    so if you run a 1hp chiller continously for 1 hour, it uses 0.743kwh.
    electricity bill will be 0.743 x $0.16 = $0.1188/hr.
