    I use that plastic egg crate diffuser, I am not sure that this would spread the load very much at all so I would be worried about point loading 6mm glass like that. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    Critique my hardscape Rock "rough" 50l hardscape

    I really like the look of this. Personally I would stick to rock and plants for something like this but that's just me. Sent from my [null] using Tapatalk

    attaching Buces and Anubias
