Lighting is a Coralife fixture of 2x 95 watt Power compact bulbs- one actinic, and one 6,700k. The fixture is four feet long, centered along the front panel. I tried different positions for the lighting, but this is the one I like the best.

Looks great. Working on a BG for a 75 gallon. Only question I have is: most styrofoam has a clear plastic coat on it. Did u remove that before using the dryloc? anything will help. THanks!
