overall satisfied. can also downgrade lightset to maybe low powered leds...
Nice! True on the downgrade light part. The money spent on lights equates to a piece of acrylic too.

You cut one full piece? Didnt see any joints?

Just a finding...when buying acrylic try to buy plexi glas...i tried 2 types of acrylic...the normal type i got from those photoframe shop and two from ying kwang who sold plexi glas...

The normal acrylic i used started bending less then a week i place it in my tank and the plexi glas i used for months with no sign of bending.

Just my finding.

Cheers

Hi bro,

plexi glass is also a type of acrylic from what i know. Bent because of what im not sure.

It's together with the rest of the acrylic which i bought as plexi glass from ying kwang which consist of 1 big one and 1 small one. Both of the plexi glass are still doing fine as the big one is in my tank for nearly 1/2 year but the normal transparent acrylic i got from those photo frame shop after a few days can see visible bending at the corner area. All using 3mm thickness only.

Also plexi glass is ard same price as the acrylic i got from photo frame shop provided that there are loose pieces ard.

just my 2 cents

cheers n regards
