Okay Matt,

Your help was great,

Well,

the canopy is ready, the lights look so incredibly good. I can't find words to express de difference with the old fluorescent tubs that I had to the ones that I placed.

At the end was the 2x55 lights with one 6500k in the front and a 5500K in the back, they look so good. One of the Discus is not to happy with the new lights, I think the tank is now to bright, but they will be moved soon to the 90 G anyway.

I wish someone could be nice enough to tell me how to put pics in here so that I can show you the result of the canopy plus the lights, I am very proud of my job Wink

If you do give me the how to place pics on here, please take in to consideration that I have an iBook Mac computer, using OS X

Thank you all.

P.S.

I am building a stand for the 10 G now, this will be a try out for the 90 G, I'll keep you post it.

either of these sites will allow photo hosting...

www.villagephotos.com

and

www.imagestation.com

imagestation allows you to host more photos than village, but occasionally I've had problems w/ hot-linking...

both are free to join...

once you've got your photos on the internet, get their URL by clicking on the photo and copying the address...

to post a photo on this message board... type the following (taking out the ".")

[.img.]http=www.adogplayingpiano.com[/.img]

of course "adogplayingpiano" will be replaced by the photo's link... Smile

hope that helps!

photobucket.com is also a good place to host your photos and they are free also. You can also do some editing from that site.

Well here are some pics on how the tank looks now with the new lights and hood. I have not recive the pics of the Canopy yet, as soon as I have them I will share them, however in this two pics before and after you can see that with the new lights the plants are doing so much better. Specially the Red Tiger Lotus (Nymphaea lotus) on the right front of the tank, in the first pic which is before you can see that there is only two very long leafs almost reaching the top. With the new lights my leafs are grown thicker and bigger, if you look carfully you can see two large leafs on the mid tank from the same plant.

Thanks again,

Luis
