 Nice  Work  Ruchit...The  silicon  pasting  especially  looks  very  professional!
 
 Its  just  the  canister  outlet  at  the  side  of  the  glass  makes  it  a  little  odd..  
 
 Would  like  to  come  and  visit  you  when  the  tank  is  setup  and  running!

 The  only  thing  i  felt  would  have  been  better  is  not  having  those  side  drills  for  canister  out......  i  prefer  that  to  be  typical  canister  out.

 Nice  Workmanship!  Thumb Up  
 One  Question  on  the  placement  of  Canister  Inlets  &  outlets.....  Is  the  cycling  of  the  water  system  Ok  with  this  kind  of  close  positioning  of  Inlet  &  Outlets????  What  happens  to  the  central  part  of  the  tank  water  as  I'm  not  sure  the  water  is  cycling  thoroughly  across  the  tank.  Or  that's  the  Idea?
 
 Inlet  1  is  near  to  Outlet  2  &  Inlet  2  is  near  to  Outlet  1

 yupp  ¬†black  glass  looks  little  different,  mine  is  a  little  translucent  although  you  do  get  a  jet  black  glass.  Black  silicone  is  fine  I  have  been  using  it  for  sometime  but  I  have  found  that  the  curing  time  is  a  little  longer  than  a  clear  silicone  or  may  be  it  is  the  dry  weather  in  Bangalore  will  makes  it  cure  slow.

 Rohit  the  water  circulation  seems  fine  I  can  see  the  two  forces  colliding  at  the  center.  I  have  however  reduced  the  current  by  using  big  outlet  and  it  gives  me  a  smooth  current  without  any  dead  spots  in  the  tank.  The  inlets  and  outlets  are  not  that  close  as  what  is  seen  in  the  picture.

 I  have  already  added  the  soil  but  it  is  bit  less  so  would  be  topping  up  with  20kgs  more  at  the  time  of  planting.  I  am  planning  for  a  Dutch  type  setup  with  loads  of  plants  keeping  drifts  and  stones  to  minimal,  lets  see  how  it  turns  out  to  be..  fingers  crossed  ¬†Smile

 Thanks,  ill  go  for  black  glass  and  silicone.  they  look  stunning.  You  should  try  LED  flood  lights  on  your  tank.  the  are  really  intense  and  around  8000k  and  from  10  -  50watts.  you  get  them  at  any  light  shop.  i  have  grown  glosso  and  many  more.  you  dont  need  to  replace  them  for  long  like  t5  and  MH.
