Looks good for the setup. Let me know when it's ready for a pair of clowns and we'll hook her up :)

 

Awesome!(rock2)(rock2) I get to see the clownhouse finally!(clap)(clap) I'm going to meet Mike the administrator this coming Friday. He couldn't make it today and go over the tank with him and do a water change and show him how to do the testing!
