    FYI - 20 longs at Petco for $9!

    I had a mental battle with my inner hoarder not to buy them all.

    Red Sea Tanks - How It's Made

    All that green glass you see in tanks and house windows IS float glass. Low iron glasses are made using the float process, and this is a tiny fraction of the industry.

    Red Sea Tanks - How It's Made

    This is not true. Float glass has to do with the process, not the content of the material.

    Desperately need some help

    Someone on here must have one, post in WTB. If you’re feeling courageous, you can get a drill for under $20 from Harbor Freight, and a whole set of glass holesaws from Amazon also for under $20. Look on YouTube, there’s a ton of videos to walk you through it.

    I’d be happy to help if you were closer. You should get the overflow box and return that you want first. Then measure the bulkheads that come with them and drill the appropriate holes. That’s the order you need to do this in. Protip on drilling glass, drill starting from the inside if possible. This way if you “chip-out” on the end of the hole, it’s on the bulkhead nut surface instead of the gasket surface inside the tank. It’s also way easier to keep the cut submerged with water during the drilling.

    ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    Man, I think I would get another Radion and call it a day.

    ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    What size tank is this going over?

    ISO 24w t5 bulbs

    FWIW, I’m running a 4x24 ATI with two nanobox 13ups, the leds still shimmer real nice. That’s like a ratio of 2 watts t5 to 1 watt led. I think a radion runs like 170w, so you would need more than like 14 24w t5s to drown out the shimmer.

    3D printed ato float holder

    Cool stuff, have you thought of selling these on shapeways? I bought a printed viewfinder for one of my cameras from them. From my understanding the seller just uploads to shapeways and then they print it and ship it to the buyer. This was news to me that people are doing this.
